How does a writer address counterarguments in a paper without weakening his or her own position?

Report as

The best way you can deal with counter arguments is to expose the weaknesses on the opposing position. You should not make it the focus of the paper as it may seem you were not sure which side to support in the process. It is also advisable to anticipate weaknesses in your argument that will be exposed by opponents and you should have defense. In most cases making an acknowledgment of a potential weakness can strengthen your points.
