In this qualitative variety of a multiple mixed dispute, the standpoints are connected in a special way. After all, a successful defence of the second standpoint implies that the first standpoint has been defended as well: if it is cold in a place, then – assuming the same standards – it is not hot in that place. A dispute, like the one in dialogues (5) and (6), is not (only) multiple in a quantitative sense, but (also) in a qualitative sense. 3. 24 VAN EEMEREN ET AL. /(+|−/p2) Quantitative multiple mixed +|−/p1, +|−/p2 −|+/p1, −|+/p2 Qualitative multiple mixed +|−/p1, −|+/p2 −|+/p1, +|−/p2 [D+|−/p2 D−|+/p1] p = the proposition the standpoint relates to; + = positive standpoint; − = negative standpoint; ?
