About this book

This volume presents a selection of papers reflecting key theoretical issues in argumentation theory. Its six sections are devoted to specific themes, including the analysis and evaluation of argumentation, argument schemes and the contextual embedding of argumentation. The section on general perspectives on argumentation discusses the trends of empiricalization, contextualization and formalization, offers descriptions of the analytical and evaluative tools of informal logic, and highlights selected principles that argumentation theorists do and do not agree upon. In turn, the section on linguistic approaches to argumentation focuses on the problem of distinguishing between explanation and argument, while also elaborating on the role of verbal indicators of argument schemes. All essays included in this volume point out notable recent developments in the study of argumentation.

Reviews

“Reflections on Theoretical Issues in Argumentation Theory … is a collection of 20 papers selected from contributions to the proceedings of the 8th conference of the International Society for the Study of Argumentation (ISSA), held in Amsterdam in 2014. … this collection offers argumentation scholars an impressive and expansive range of reflections on theoretical issues to draw inspiration from in continuing to develop the field of argument.” (Kaitlyn Haynal, Informal Logic, Vol. 36 (1), 2016)
