Dialectic and Rhetoric

The Warp and Woof of Argumentation Analysis edited by Frans H. van
Eemeren University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Peter Houtlosser
University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

ARGUMENTATION LIBRARY Volume: 6

This volume discusses two distinct perspectives on the analysis of
argumentative discourse: the dialectical and the rhetorical
perspective. Both theoretical approaches have a long and eminent
history, which is also complex. After their first development in
Antiquity, remarkable changes have taken place in the way in which
dialectic and rhetoric, and their relationship, have been viewed. This
volume intends to open a thorough discussion of the two approaches,
their commonalities and differences, and the ways in which, in some
combination or other, they can be used to further the development of
sound analytic tools for dealing with argumentation.


Dialectic and Rhetoric: The Warp and Woof of Argumentation Analysis
contains essays by prominent scholars in dialetic and rhetoric:
J.A.E. Bons, Frans H. van Eemeren, Jean Goodwin, Hanns Hohmann, Peter
Houtlosser, Scott Jacobs, Erik C.W. Krabbe, Fred J. Kauffeld, Michael
Leff, and Edward Schlappa. All authors explain certain views on the
role that dialetic and rhetoric can play, alone or in combination, in
conceptualizing and analyzing argumentative discourse. The collection
of essays as a whole is meant to be an inspiration to all those
interested in improving the quality of the analysis of argumentative
discourse.
