I have a thought for a chapter that I'd be interested in developing that deals with developing arguments based upon topic deconstruction. I've just returned from an International Debate Academy and watched 30 different nations debate in World format. This topic goes beyond the typical topic (resolution) analysis. This posits a deconstruction of the topic and the subsequent development of argument ideas.
Thanks, I'm happy to provide more if you need it.
