Bias and Opinion

I’m not particularly familiar with any of these terms, since people use them in all sorts of ways (dictionary definitions don’t help either). However, I would say that depending on the context in which you use these words, their differences might be different. For example, a biased textbook is one that provides a one sided argument, in other words only one opinion. A non biased textbook is one that provides 2 or more opinions.

At the same time, you could say: “Person X’s opinion is biased”. In this case, opinion means view, and biased means one sided.

    But opinion is usually one sided as well. Usually people don’t say I agree with all sides of an argument because that would be contradicting everything that person says. People can’t say yes and no to an argument.
