Judging Philosophy

Judging approach:

Evidence philosophy:
Paradigm:

LD

Rounds judged: 20
Approach: Equal
Philosophy:
For me, LD always comes back to the value debate, as well as the value-criterion relationship. I do not like rapid delivery, and spreading will cause me to dock points from debaters. I like when cases are well backed-up with philosophical (if not necessarily empirical) evidence. I take very detailed flows.
