``How To Speak and Write Postmodern'' Posted to by Andrew C Bulhak on 20 June 1995, found in alt.postmodern. by Stephen Katz, Associate Professor, Sociology, Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada Postmodernism has been the buzzword in academia for the last decade. Books, journal articles, conference themes and university courses have resounded to the debates about postmodernism that focus on the uniqueness of our times, where computerization, the global economy and the media have irrevocably transformed all forms of social engagement. As a professor of sociology who teaches about culture, I include myself in this environment. However, I think the real gulf is not so much positional as linguistic. First, you need to remember that plainly expressed language is out of the question. Sometimes you might be in a hurry and won't have the time to muster even the minimum number of postmodern synonyms and neologisms needed to avoid public disgrace. Now for the test.

Intellectually honest and intellectually dishonest debate tactics Copyright by John T. Reed This Web site is, in part, a debate between me and others with whom I take various issues. One of my readers said reading this article changed his life. Here is a discussion I once had with a mother of an 18-year old I had just thrown off a high school varsity athletic team I was coaching. I thought that was one of the world’s greatest answers to a woman trying to prove I, too, was a juvenile delinquent at that age. It took my breath away. Although I am fond of intellectually-honest debate, about 90% to 95% of the statements made by my opponents to prove that I am wrong have been of the intellectually-dishonest variety. Lest I be accused of intellectually-dishonest debate myself, I hereby explain the difference. 1. pointing out errors or omissions in your opponent’s facts 2. pointing out errors or omissions in your opponent’s logic All other debate tactics are intellectually dishonest. Most of Roberts Rules relates to procedure like limiting debate.

A Preface of Quotations Whoever desires for his writings or himself, what none can reasonably condemn,the favor of mankind, must add grace to strength, and make his thoughts agreeable as well as useful. Men must be taught as if you taught them not; And things unknown propos'd as things forgot. Style in painting is the same as in writing, a power over materials, whether words or colors, by which conceptions or sentiments are conveyed.
