Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: Arguments about Arguments
Subtitle: Systematic, Critical and Historical Essays in Logical Theory
Written By: Maurice A. Finocchiaro
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521853273
Description:

Following an approach that is empirical but not psychological, and
dialectical but not dialogical, Maurice Finocchiaro defines concepts such
as reasoning, argument, argument analysis, critical reasoning,
methodological reflection, judgment, critical thinking, and informal
logic. Including extended critiques of the views of many contemporary
scholars, he also integrates into the discussion Arnauld's Port-Royal
Logic, Gramsci's theory of intellectuals, and case studies from the
history of science, particularly the work of Galileo, Newton, Huygens, and
Lavoisier.
