Exactly! :-) One person's reduction ad absurdum is another person's interesting consequence.

I’m motivated because a loved one holds that opposing viewpoint and want to live with them in greater harmony

Alternative maps probably exist if there is not a way to ensure premissary saturation
Simon Brown
01:10:56
why do you need premises that in fact support the conclusion? Couldn’t premises which might seem to a reasonable and honest person to support the conclusion work?

I emphasize to students that anytime you map an inference, you should be able to read out the individual premises, with "and" between them, then say "therefore" and read the inferred claim, and it should make sense.

Quick plug for our follow-up session on Jan 10. I’ll take up the questions of why to be charitable, when not to be charitable, and offer some more examples of practice exercises for students. You can register here https://thinkeranalytix.org/harvard-argument-mapping-intellectual-charity/

Does anyone have a list of the possible functions of language that you share with students to help them identify possible functions?

Thank you so much for the enlightening talk!
Preston Stovall

Thanks for doing this -- very useful, and glad to see there's work on argument mapping and intellectual charity.
Dona Warren

It's hard to teach how to identify these different roles of language, but sometimes simply alerting students to the *existence* of these different roles can be transformative.
