Argumentation, Communication, and Fallacies: A Pragma-dialectical Perspective

Argumentation, Communication, and Fallacies: A Pragma-dialectical Perspective

This volume gives a theoretical account of the problem of analyzing and evaluating argumentative discourse. After placing argumentation in a communicative perspective, and then discussing the fallacies that occur when certain rules of communication are violated, the authors offer an alternative to both the linguistically-inspired descriptive and logically-inspired normative approaches to argumentation.
