Featured Article: An Intellectual Code of Conduct by Kenneth R. Samples

In today's featured 3 part article, Reasons to Believe scholar Kenneth R. Samples discusses the importance of practicing An Intellectual Code of Conduct when interacting with opponents of your position.

Samples shares 3 rules that can help thinkers maintain a fruitful and respectful dialogue.

They are:

  • Rule #1: Take the Time and Effort to Get an Opponent's Argument Right
  • Rule #2: Stay on Topic When Offering a Legitimate Rebuttal
  • Rule #3: Render an Honest and Fair Assessment of All Evidence for an Opponent's Position
You can find this three part article here, here and here.
