The original conversation can be found over on pychen's site (link
) and I also have an archive of it on my site (link
). Click on the large version below to see the full resolution argument map. "Argunet
," the software I'm using, doesn't allow me to create just any size image I want, so I've extended Map A off to the right with Map B. Hopefully that is clear enough. I'm open to corrections, spelling mistakes, and any organizational ideas to help the presentation be more clear. Some of the mapping is a matter of interpretation of a very long and complicated conversation, but hopefully it properly represents the course of things.
Please note the labels for each box if you want to submit new rebuttals. Oh yeah, and btw, there is no "naturalistic logic argument map" yet (as it refers to in some of the purple squares). That's forthcoming.
I think these argument maps are important because the conversation tends to go in circles. This nails down all the important iterations so we can see the entire conversation-scape more easily and directly refer to specific junctures. Philip noted (link
) it might be easier to have a physical copy. I agree, it is better. The one I printed out cost me about 8 dollars at Kinko's to get a really nice (readable) laminated version. Don't know if that's worth it to anyone, but if you were curious, that's the price tag. Although if you are just looking to get throw away copies as I update them, then it's only like 3 dollars or something.
