Question and answer
Why do you think it is important to be able to make the distinction between a person and an idea?
The personality, attitude or previous ideas of someone shouldn't affect how you treat their new ideas because the ideas themselves are in a way separate. [ It would be bias and unfair to dismiss something someone says because they are a horrible person, you usually disagree with them or have a history of bad ideas. This is the attitude of a philosopher; to be clear minded and treat everything as
if it's a new and open idea. However, in reality, it is obvious you cannot always rely on this. You can sometimes judge a person's ideas on who they are and what they stand for because their ideas are very likely going to fall into the same category as their attitudes or beliefs. ]
