Origin and usage in the context of xenophobia Etymology statute of the Antisemitic League The origin of "antisemitic" terminologies is found in the responses of Moritz Steinschneider to the views of Ernest Renan. As Alex Bein writes: Steinschneider used this phrase to characterise the French philosopher Ernest Renan's false ideas about how " Semitic races " were inferior to " Aryan races "'. He coined the phrase "the Jews are our misfortune" which would later be widely used by Nazis.
These are basically unresolvable with anything less than a lifetime of philosophical work, but they usually allow mutual understanding and respect. More detail on what I mean by each level: Meta-debate is discussion of the debate itself rather than the ideas being debated.
Is one side being hypocritical? Are some of the arguments involved offensive? Is someone being silenced? What biases motivate either side? Is someone defying a consensus?
Who is the underdog? I even think it can sometimes be helpful to argue about which side is the underdog. If it works, supporting one side of an argument imposes so much reputational cost that only a few weirdos dare to do it, it sinks outside the Overton Window, and the other side wins by default.
This is part of the process that creates polarization and echo chambers. The best result is that you never went into that space at all. They may sometimes suggest what might, with a lot more work, be a good point.
And it might greatly decrease the number of guns available to law-abiding people hoping to defend themselves.
So the cost of people not being able to defend themselves might be greater than the benefit of fewer criminals being able to commit crimes.
But this would be a reasonable argument and not just a gotcha. Single facts are when someone presents one fact, which admittedly does support their argument, as if it solves the debate in and of itself. Second, even things with some bad features are overall net good.
Trump could be a dishonest businessman, but still have other good qualities. Hillary Clinton may be crap at email security, but skilled at other things.
Even if these facts are true and causal, they only prove that a plan has at least one bad quality. At best they would be followed up by an argument for why this is really important. I think the move from shaming to good argument is kind of a continuum.
This level is around the middle.
Single studies are better than scattered facts since they at least prove some competent person looked into the issue formally.
Scientific studies are much less reliable guides to truth than most people think. On any controversial issue, there are usually many peer-reviewed studies supporting each side. Sometimes these studies are just wrong. Other times they investigate a much weaker subproblem but get billed as solving the larger problem.
Probably it depends a lot on the particular job, the size of the minimum wage, how the economy is doing otherwise, etc, etc, etc. Gary Kleck does have a lot of studies showing that more guns decrease crime, but a lot of other criminologists disagree with him.Preface to the 'Home Education' Series.
The educational outlook is rather misty and depressing both at home and abroad. That science should be a staple of education, that the teaching of Latin, of modern languages, of mathematics, must be reformed, that nature and handicrafts should be pressed into service for the training of the eye and hand, that boys and girls must learn to write English.
