Why we need more knives

Introducing: “Timekept”

Introducing: "Timekept""Is it ok if we use Debatekeeper?" - words you'll often hear at tournaments, proving that an app supporting the adjudication process is always welcome. However, there was one problem: iOS users had no possibility to use it. An alternative app is now available - New Zealand debater Philip Belesky programmed "Timekept", which is available for 0,99€ at the App Store. Following his invitation, the Achte Minute had Anastasia Kreis check it out.

“How Dangerous Spaces Debating would work” – Shengwu Li on the current discussion on setting motions

"How Dangerous Spaces Debating would work" – Shengwu Li on the current discussion on setting motionsAfter Tim Squirrel provoked a debate on free speech, Amanda Moorghen, deputy chief adjudicator of this year's European Universities Debating Championship in Vienna, proposed in a comment on Facebook that chief adjudicators (CAs) should take the debaters' feelings into consideration when setting motions: "Your race, your gender – these are things which affect the feelings a motion creates in you. It is wrong when, even unintentionally, we only selectively attempt to avert the suffering of others."  The post got a lot of attention. Shengwu Li, European Champion 2009 and best speaker of the World Univeristies Debating Championship in 2010, answered ...

“A waste of time to examine context?” – Steve Llano on the ethics of the chair

"A waste of time to examine context?" - Steve Llano on the ethics of the chairUnder the impression of experiences at Vienna IV, professor of rhetoric and debating coach Steve Llano advocates for an "ethical adjudication". This article was first published on his blog, Progymnasmata. The Vienna IV seems like a competition that time forgot. It's a competition that reaches back to European debate the way it was long before I got involved in it, to a time when the more weird or inside-joke funny the motion was, the better the tournament. These are examples of motions and procedures that operated debate societies before the current trend of making competitions tied at least somewhat to the ...
