autolycus BS: List the reasons people disagree (160* d) RE: BS: List the reasons people disagree 23 Nov 11

Jani said,

" Where it really gets interesting and complex is the process of each individual in defining their "interest." Most people, (I hope) often disagree with themselves and are aware of it."

To enlarge on that, each individual may or may difine their interests consciously. It may be that they have their position as a consequence of upbringing whereby their interest isn't an interest at all, but, for them, more like the air they breathe, i.e. something just given as a 'fact of life'.

Apart from all that, their interest can be arrived at thru a mixture of some of the reasons I originally suggested, like a particular psychology and a lack of knowledge.

personally, Jack, I simply do not see disagree and disapprove as synonyms.

I can certainly see that people disrespect or experience disrespect. In my book, that is in a somewhat different realm from disagreement.

Some may wish to blur the lines between disagree and disapprove or disrespect. I am one wanting to keep the distinction, and make it clearer.

What has prompted me to start this thread is a very long-standing one of wanting to stand back from any argument, especially the longest-riunning ones, to get a grip on what is really going on.
