ABOUT THIS BOOK
Seeks to suggest more productive ways of understanding some of the key issues in argumentation theory
 
A follow-up volume to Willard’s Theory of Argumentation”, Argumentation and the Social Grounds of Knowledge seeks to suggest more productive ways of understanding some of the key issues in argumentation theory.

Most importantly is the premise that the precise and useful sense of the term “argument” is a form of social interaction, a kind of interaction in which two or more people maintain what they believe to be incompatible positions. The investigations in this book specify argumentation’s self-definition as a scholarly field and its empirical agenda. Arguments are aimed at theorists, researcher, and critics within the discipline, at the same time endeavoring to prove that argument studies are fundamental to other lines of inquiry as well
