Context and argument

This essay is ostensibly about religion, but at a deeper level it is about how easily misunderstandings occur when we cannot recognise the truth and common ground in an opposing view. Most arguments are embedded in a particular context and often embodied in some way, hiding much to an ignorant interlocutor. Ripping arguments from this context makes it easy to refute them, with a resulting loss of wisdom.
