Logos, or the appeal to logic, means to convince an audience by use of logic or reason.
To use logos would be to cite facts and statistics, historical and literal analogies, and citing certain authorities on a subject. We use Logos to construct logical arguments.
Debate is defined as: a formal discussion on a particular topic in a public meeting or legislative assembly, in which opposing arguments are put forward.
Logos Debate is founded on the principles of logic and clear argumentation.
We believe that logical argumentation can and should be accessible to everyone, not just the academic elite. This is why we’re constructing a format that is radically more accessible and easier to interpret than other forms of competitive debate, yet still captures the best educational and engaging aspects of those past forms.
If we all learn how to debate, the future is brighter for everyone.
