Eristic

Mythological Dictionary

Eris was the goddess of "strife" or "discord," responsible for all the dissension arising from the Apple of Discord, which she threw among the guests at the wedding banquet of Peleus and Thetis. Thus is derived the term eristic, which as an adjective means pertaining to argument or dispute, as a noun it refers to rhetoric or the art of debate. See Apple of Discord.
