Abstract

Deep disagreement isn’t about the irresolvability of actual disputes, it is about one of the inherent limitations of argument as a tool for re-establishing intersubjectivity. I explore the relationship between argument, deep disagreement, and shared understanding, while responding to Phillips’ criticisms of my account. If we can learn about the conditions under which argument cannot work, then we can learn when to turn to other strategies to help us get along.

Deep Disagreement in a Multicultural World

I explore the relationship between argument, deep disagreement, and shared understanding, while responding to Phillips’ criticisms of my account.
