About "Applications of the Resolution (INFO)"
The purpose of this article is advocacy: giving you some research starters. Think of it as a buffet of useful arguments and their accompanying thematic cores. Good applications are abundant – you’ll see many of them in the cases at the back of this book. This article teaches you how to run those applications well.
The purpose of applications depends on the type of case you’re running. Idealistic, value-centric cases want to make powerful philosophical claims of worth based on the essential nature of the resolutional terms. Pragmatic, contention-centric cases want to pile on evidence and bury their opponents’ case logic with a mountain of data.
In the first, an application is not advocacy but illustration, a convenient portrait of how the case works. In the latter, an application is hard proof that such-and-such is the case. Many applications can be used for both purposes; just make sure you impact them correctly to avoid contradicting yourself.
