Argumentative Versus Public Domain DebatesArgumentative claims are compelling arguments that include attention to detail and technical details. The amount of attention to detail and technical details will differ according to the topic.
For example, in a traditional debate, one party focuses on claims and questions. He or she will repeat the claims and questions back to the other party. Both parties will question each other's claims and questions back and forth.
In the conventional debate, the techniques for the two sides to stand up and make their claims and questions are also very similar. However, this system does not work very well with in an argumentative form. An argumentative debate is more like a debate between two people instead of two parties.
The reason for this is because in an argumentative style of debate, the emphasis is more on the personal skill of the one who is speaking. One has to think about what one can say to persuade the other party. In contrast, the emphasis is more on what the audience can hear and interpret.
A good example of this is when two people engage in an argumentative style of debate. During a debate between two people, the first person will often insist that he or she is the one who should be spoken to and the other person will counter with 'and I am.'
In a public domain, this is how most discussions are conducted. However, in an argumentative style of debate, the person who is speaking is the one who has to convince the other person to be convinced. Whereas, in a public domain debate, the audience doesn't really care if the other party is persuaded.
Another interesting difference between public domain debates and argumentative style is that in public domain debates, the two people involved don't engage in much debate. They may agree on the topic, but do not engage in debate over the topic. In contrast, the subject of debate in an argumentative style of debate is what one is arguing about.
So, if you want to find out how the debate can be made more compelling, then you can certainly make the most out of public domain debates. Just make sure that the topic is something that is quite interesting and that you have something to say. If you do not, you might end up with only a distant conversation.
