Critical discussion for sub-optimal settings

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic

Abstract

This paper aims at answering the following question: when some of the higher order conditions for a critical discussion are not met, should we adopt a policy of applying the rules for critical discussion?
I will defend a moderate answer in between two extreme ones. The first extreme position is "anything goes policy", which implies that the rules do not apply in these cases. The second position is "business as usual policy", implying that the rules apply anyway. The moderate solution implies that only some rules apply, which will be determined by the specific conditions that are not met.
