Reasons for voting decision: Pro's S&G was obviously bad. Con's the only one who sourced his arguments. As to arguments themselves, Pro just restated his own opinion multiple times. Con, by contrast, made a case that he supported the value of philosophy. If a bit of snark may be forgiven, perhaps more time spent on philosophy would have helped Pro make a better case. Arguments, sources, and S&G to Con. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
