This workshop was created by Croatian participant of Erasmus+ youth exchange “Let Me Think About It” (2017-3-HR01-KA105-046746) organized by Udruga Studio B. The workshop was held in Nova Gradiška during the YE activity with 36 youngsters.

Aims of the tool

- To distinguish point of view from dis/agreement
- To explore the topic of online disagreement hierarchy
- To differentiate the responses to the writing and to the writer
- To recognize the most convincing forms of disagreement online

Description of the tool

This workshop was inspired by “Disagreement hierarchy” pyramid proposed by Paul Graham in a 2008 essay “How to Disagree” on the topic of online disagreement.
Pyramid classifies seven different levels of disagreement (DH0 Name-calling; DH1 Ad hominem; DH2 Responding to tone; DH3 Contradiction; DH4 Counterargument; DH5 Refutation; DH6 Refuting the central point), where the highest levels of pyramid represent the most convincing forms of disagreement.
Following the logic of the pyramid shape, the lowest levels are actually the most common forms of online disagreement, while the highest forms are rare as they require a lot of effort for forming.

More can be read on: http://www.paulgraham.com/disagree.html while the DH pyramid can be found among the materials.
