I am the only policy team on my debate team. My partner and I went to UTNIF last summer so we have a decent grasp on policy so far. We don't have a coach or anyone else on the team with reasonable policy knowledge. I heard that the best way for teams from small schools to be competitive was to become good K debaters, so thats what we're trying to do. Right now, we're trying to qual for state (we're in texas) but idk if that's going to happen. Does anyone have any tips for small schools?
I found Dreyfus' critique of AI where he talks about artificial intelligence in relation to Heidegger. I was wondering if anyone had a card/source that says artificial intelligence is the epitome of calculative thought etc. It seems to me that AI defines everything as resources rather than respecting being in itself. I'm not really familiar with Heidegger/ontology so correct me if I don't know what I'm talking about. I just feel like this would put a cool spin on Artificial intelligence.
Not that I'm building a case or anything.
Both me and my old partner are doing our first tournament with freshman so we can teach them policy.
How do I teach a freshman policy debate?
My partner is running Foucault for the aff, but I'm thinking of running a down to earth Islamaphobia/airports aff.
Suggestions would help.
