I am trying to say that an argument (a philosophical reasoning for what it's worth) is not taken to its extreme consequences, in the sense that it is not brought and explored to its logical deepest reach. A reach that, here's my point, would be logically (rectius: epistemically) unacceptable and therefore impairs the overall soundness of the argument.
At the same time, every kind of dictionary daunts me in saying "the resoning is not taken to its extreme consequences" for it would give the whole phrase a appraisive tone, since "extreme" is not only a logical height (i.e., when collecting the reasoning's every possible declension) but also some sort of moral value (the reasoning is "extreme" in the sense that it is not moderate, it lacks equilibrium, it's kind of... violent). Now, I definitely want to avoid any of that moral fashion in my statement. How should one say, then, "to explore a reasoning in all its implications and reach" in a normal unconvoluted manner?
