Book Debate
 
 

I heard you were wondering what a book debate is. It’s a good question, and hopefully I can clarify for you. Wikipedia defines a debate as, “a method of interactive and representational argument. Debate is a broader form of argument than deductive reasoning, which only examines whether a conclusion is a consequence of premises, and factual argument, which only examines what is or isn’t the case, or rhetoric which is a technique of persuasion.”

Wikipedia goes on to say, “A book is a set of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of ink, paper, parchment, or other materials, usually fastened together to hinge at one side.”

Therefore I have come to the conclusion that, “A book debate is usually fastened together to hinge at one side. Book debate is a broader form of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, which only examines whether a conclusion is a consequence of premises, and factual argument, which only examines what is or isn’t the case, or rhetoric which is a technique of persuasion.”

Okay, that doesn’t seem to work. Forget Wikipedia. In my opinion, a book debate is when two people take opposing positions on a book or book related topic and discuss it to see who’s right. That feels more like a book debate to me. What do you think?

We’re going to need your help to determine who is right, so in our book debates, readers choose the winners. I am really excited about this column to see the interesting debates we get into about books and book related subjects.

Just imagine a book debate in which Lord of the Rings or John Grisham is thrown under the bus or defended with words. The book debates will be epic.
