Comm Chapter 2- Applied and Academic Debate Debate can be classified into two broad categories: Applied and educational. Applied Debate is conducted on propositions in which the advocates have a special interest, and the debate is presented before a judge or and audience with the power to render a binding decision on the proposition. a. Special Debate -special rules like presidential debate b. Judicial Debate - also known as moot court debate in academic form c. Parliamentary Debate- entended to pass, amend, or defeat a motion or resolution d. Nonformal Debate -no real set of rules almost like a social argument. Academic debate is conducted of propositions in which the advocates have an academic interest. Judges are told to overlook the merits of the proposition and render a decision on the merits of the debate. Confucianism says that there is only one truth and that truth will always be known regardless of ones ability to debate for or otherwise.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
