Abstract:

This is a selection of current state of the art work on argumentation theory.
The collection provides a balanced view of theoretical issues in
argumentation theory.
A wide variety of approaches and perspectives are represented.

Pondering on Problems of Argumentation is a collection of twenty essays
brought together for anyone who is interested in theoretical issues in the
study of argumentation. This collection of papers gives the reader an
insightful and balanced view of the kind of theoretical issues
argumentation theorists are currently concerned with. Because most of the
perspectives on argumentation that are en vogue are represented, this
volume provides a multidisciplinary and even interdisciplinary outlook on
the current state of affairs in argumentation theory. Some of the
contributions in Pondering on Problems of Argumentation deal with problems
of argumentation that have been recognized as theoretical issues for a
considerable time, like the problems of fallaciousness and identifying
argumentation structures. Other contributions discuss issues that have
become a focus of attention only recently or regained their prominence,
such as the relationship between dialectic and rhetoric, and the strategic
use of the argumentative technique of dissociation. In five separate
sections papers are included dealing with argumentative strategies,
problems of norms of reasonableness and fallaciousness, types of argument
and argument schemes the structure of argumentation and rules for advocacy
and discussion.
