In this lecture from The Great Courses course The Art of Debate, Professor Jarrod Atchison, Ph.D. teaches about four different kinds of evidence that are frequently used in debate. He first discusses the power of using a story as evidence for an argument. He then describes the use of empirical evidence such as data and statistics. He provides examples of how authority can play an important role in evidence used in a debate. And lastly, he tells of the importance of the personal narrative in debate, which is usually more persuasive than describing the narrative of someone else. He applies all these types of evidence to a hypothetical debate about assisted suicide. Expand your power to debate with these strategies of using evidence.
