Title: A Systematic Theory of Argumentation
Subtitle: The pragma-dialectical approach
Written By: Frans H. van Eemeren

Description:

In this book two of the leading figures in argumentation theory present a
view of argumentation as a means of resolving differences of opinion by
testing the acceptability of the disputed positions. Their model of a
'critical discussion' serves as a theoretical tool for analyzing,
evaluating and producing argumentative discourse. They develop a method for
the reconstruction of argumentative discourse that takes into account all
aspects that are relevant to a critical assessment. They also propose a
practical code of behavior for discussants who want to resolve their
differences in a reasonable way. This is a major contribution to the study
of argumentation and will be of particular value to professionals and
graduate students in speech communication, informal logic, rhetoric,
critical thinking, linguistics, and philosophy. "...a major event in
argumentation theory scholarship." Michael C. Leff, Northwestern University
