How to introduce two arguments in a scientific paper?
There are two arguments. On the one hand ARGUMENT1. On the other hand ARGUMENT2.
Now I was told I should not use this construct unless I am introducing two contradictory arguments. I was told to rather use:
There are two arguments. First ARGUMENT1. Second ARGUMENT2.
However I actually don't like the second way. Is there any other construct that suits better?
Note: I am not a native speaker therefore I missing some expressions. Probably there is an obvious answer.
