Doyle: A Study in Scarlet
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson solve their first case together. A lettfer from Tobias Gregson arrives at Baker Street, he pleads Holmes to help him with an unexplained death near Brixton Road in Lauriston Gardens. Drebber, the murdered man, lies in an abandoned house. The "Rache" is written on the wall with blood. The investigators of Scotland Yard think it could the unfinished name "Rachel" or it could be the German word "Rache", whereby the latter is considered more likely by Holmes, who is proficient in German. Holmes finds a woman's wedding ring on the body. There is blood in the rooms, but not Drebber's, as he seems completely unharmed. To set a trap for the perpetrator, Holmes places a newspaper ad in which he claims to have found a wedding ring, to be picked up at Dr. Watson's and the story takes its course.

Eristic Dialectic by Arthur Schopenhauer
Dialectical tricks to be right in a discussion "Eristic dialectic is the art of disputing, and disputing in such a way that one is right, that is, per fas et nefas. For one can objectively be right in the matter itself and yet be wrong in the eyes of the supporters, sometimes even in one's own. For when the opponent refutes my evidence, and this is considered to be a refutation of the claim itself, for which there may be other evidence; in which case, of course, for the opponent the relationship is reversed: he is right, in the case of objective injustice. So the objective truth of a sentence and its validity in the approval of the disputants and listeners are two different things." Arthur Schopenhauer: Eristische Dialektik.
