Dagens ord: Bulverisme

Dagens ord er tyvstjålet fra Gregory Mankiw, som har det fra C.S. Lewis. Jeg tvivler på, at vi har læsere, der ikke har eksempler på bulverisme. Det er også det, Kristian Weise bedrev forleden, som Niels Westy beskriver nedenfor. Lewis definerer bulverisme således:

In other words, you must show that a man is wrong before you start explaining why he is wrong. [… Bulverism] is to assume without discussion that he is wrong and then distract his attention from this (the only real issue) by busily explaining how he became to be so silly.
