Logic, Argumentation & Reasoning

Interdisciplinary Perspectives from the Humanities and Social Sciences

Series Ed.: Rahman, Shahid
Keiff, Laurent (Ed.)

ISSN: 2214-9120

Logic, Argumentation & Reasoning explores the links between Humanities and the Social Sciences, with theories including, decision and action theory as well as cognitive sciences, economy, sociology, law, logic, and philosophy of sciences. It’s two main ambitions are to develop a theoretical framework that will encourage and enable interaction between disciplines as well as to federate the Humanities and Social Sciences around their main contributions to public life: using informed debate, lucid decision-making and action based on reflection.

The series welcomes research from the analytic and continental traditions, putting emphasis on four main focus areas:
• Argumentation models and studies
• Communication, language and techniques of argumentation
• Reception of arguments, persuasion and the impact of power
• Diachronic transformations of argumentative practices

The Series is developed in partnership with the Maison Européenne des Sciences de l’Homme et de la Société (MESHS) at Nord - Pas de Calais and the UMR-STL: 8163 (CNRS).

Proposals should include :
• A short synopsis of the work or the introduction chapter
• The proposed Table of Contents
• The CV of the lead author(s)
• If available: one sample chapter

We aim to make a first decision within 1 month of submission. In case of a positive first decision the work will be provisionally contracted: the final decision about publication will depend upon the result of the anonymous peer review of the complete manuscript. We aim to have the complete work peer-reviewed within 3 months of submission.

The series discourages the submission of manuscripts that contain reprints of previous published material and/or manuscripts that are below 150 pages / 85,000 words.
