    Re: opposing vs disparate

    Opposing means against one another. Communists vs. capitalists, for instance. Disparate views means many different ones, not necessarily opposing, or in any relation, other than non-identity.

    Thank you but what about the second part of my question?

    Re: opposing vs disparate

    Opposing views by their nature disagree mostly or completely. Disparate views don't agree but may have some common ground. They would have to be assessed on a case by case approach- there is no formula or figure. There is no firm answer to your second question.
