To disagree with someone, you first have to show that you have really listened to what they were saying, that you have fully grasped their arguments, and that you can accurately summarize those arguments.
Without attentive listening, any critique you make will be superficial and decidedly uncritical.
It will be a critique that says more about you than the person or idea you’re supposedly responding to.
