Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: n/a
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Issues
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: I am a tab judge that does not mind spreading so long as the debater is able to be understood. I also do not mind the use of critiques, but if they are used the debater must use the ethical theory or philosophical thought properly.


Rounds judged: n/a
Approach: Issues
I judge Lincoln Douglas debates on clash. I believe that the affirmative must be able to uphold the resolution by wining the value debate and ensuring that the his/her value, criteria, contentions, sub-contentions etc. all remain intact by the end of the round. I believe the negative's job is to thoroughly disprove the affirmative argument and illustrate that the resolution was not upheld by the affirmative's argument. This may be done in a multitude of ways all of which are permissible so long as the purpose of negating the affirmative is achieved.
