KOL218 | Argumentation Ethics – Patterson in Pursuit



Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 218.

This is Episode 50 of the Patterson in Pursuit podcast, where host Steve Patterson interviews me about Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s argumentation ethics.

[Update: He does a breakdown of our discussion in Episode 63.]

Patterson’s description:

If we choose to argue, have we presupposed an ethical framework? Is “self-ownership” a concept that cannot coherently be doubted?

To help me answer these questions, I’m joined by one of the most prominent supporters of “argumentation ethics” – the theory that says ownership is inescapable, and as soon as we choose to argue, we’re committed to a set of ethical values.

    Well that was frustrating. He /seemed/ to agree with all your explanations, aaaaand still wasn’t convinced of the argument, and gave no reasons why.

    Also, is there some kind of unspoken agenda not to mention Molyneux?
