Philosophy and the humanities are underrated in education.

Danielle

I would like to thank my esteemed opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I look forward to what I hope will be a very thought provoking and insightful discussion :) For all intents and purposes, I believe the resolution is pretty straight-forward. By underrated, I will be arguing that increasing the focus in humanities and/or philosophy in education, particularly higher education, would be beneficial to society. I will contend that there is an increasing problematic...

That society ought to recognize animal rights

larztheloser

This is for the second official DDO Tournament, and this is the second round. It is a great honor to be debating Zaradi again, and to have this oppertunity to discuss this really important topic.Once again I don't think either of us will really try to cheat with our definitions. "Society" is to be taken in the most general possible sense, so pointing out specific people who have better things to do than care about animal rights is not sufficient to carry the motion. Generally th...

Utilitarianism is Good

Viperx00

Hello, first timer here I'm not quite sure how to start so I hope I'm doing it right, I'm used to informal debates but the whole structure thing is kinda new to me... I guess first round should be for acceptance, opening statements and perhaps some tips for the newbie :P Then just exchange arguments from there until the conclusion. I must confess I'm not big on research which is why I selected a topic that I thought would be more intellectual sparring and less scouring the Internet for evi...

Nothing is certain

SirLordOliver

My basic argument is that it is impossible to prove anything so as to attain complete and utter certainty. As in, "this thing is 100% fact". I contend that absolutely nothing falls under this description as truth is not objective, but subjective in nature, and therefore does not actually exist and is a social construct. This includes all, even the most rigorous sciences and math fields. I would like to spend much time debating someone about this.I will be shor...

Capital punishment should be abolished in the United States

phantom

I am a bored man.Please only accept if you have won 10 or more debates.Too the voters! Please only vote on arguments! Do not vote on sources, conduct or grammar. If one paricipant performs poorly in those catagories that will take away from his arguments, but do not give either side those points. In accepting this debate my opponent is required to agree with this rule. R...
