FalseDichotomies (ThoughtStorms)

Dichotomies and binary opositions aren't just wrong on principle. Sometimes it's useful and legitimate to just say "there's a big division between type 1 things and type 2 things, and it's worth making the distinction""

I suggest criticising a dichotomy when you have an alternative pattern :

A quick index of some of the dichotomies people are arguing are false :

|| What || Who || Where ||

|| Science and Art || Aharon / GrahamLally || ArtAndScience ||

|| Nature and ethics || SteveCrossan || MovingToTheRight ||

|| Design and organic growth || ZbigniewLukasiak || LeftAndRightAndScale, also StasismVsDynamism ||

|| Perfection and performance || Me (maybe) || PerfectionVsPerformance ||

|| Products and services || BillSeitz || ClassWarBetweenProductsAndServices ||

|| Free and non-free || Me (maybe) || PluralityOfSoftwareLicenses ||

|| GiftGiving and Exchange || Me || GiftsAndReciprocity ||
