Abstract

Is argument a game everyone should be able to play? If it is, current argument practices do not yet level the playing field enough for a fair game. We may build in subtle imbalances that work against people who cannot easily adapt to the most common patterns of argumentative interaction. We need better ways to build trust, to create safety, and adapt goals in order to bring everyone into the game.

The virtue of restraint: Rebalancing power in arguments

We may build in subtle imbalances that work against people who cannot easily adapt to the most common patterns of argumentative interaction.
