Orders of Argument

Spatial order Two and Three dimensional descriptions. This is for objects and geography and is mainly descriptive. The best route of the description needs considering.
Chronological order Fourth dimension (historical) order reproduced in a presentation. It is descriptive and the easiest to do, but alone can weaken methods of argument, and more difficult orders of presentation may be more suitable.
Inductive Order This is where the evidence is allowed to build its own overall picture. This is a history approach. The argument order is used in persuasion, because small points are raised first and the points are allowed to get more and more compelling.
Deductive order Starting with a hypothesis and talking from it, asking if the evidence fits the given theory, and concluding the strength of the hypothesis as explanatory. This is a social science approach. This often means in practice, taking a position and arguing its biggest points first, and descending.
Order of Complexity This means moving from less to more or more to less complexity in the evidence. Usually simpler ideas first allow everyone in, to take them to more difficult areas, otherwise as evidence patterns follow inductive (including persuasion) and deductive.
Order of Familiarity This means moving from less to more or more to less familiarity in the evidence. The more familiar allows most people in, moving to the least familiar where more imaginative effort is required, otherwise moving to more familiarity is part of a persuasive order.
Cause and Effect order This means setting up a chain that because of this that comes about and because of that we get the next stage (and so on). It can lose people regarding where they have been.
Quantum order There is a seeming cause and effect but several possibilities arise and one of these is selected for the next examination (to lead on or to come back later to others). A starting point elsewhere can lead to even explicit admittance that a different narrative thread leads to a different resulting order and outcome.
Relativity order Whilst giving freedom in order of subjects tackled, this approach needs constant re-emphasis on a binding connection of each piece of evidence with the others on some simple principle under examination.
Topical order It is all in the news and the only running order is moving on to something different but also newsworthy. A running order may seem reasonable.
