About the Authors
  • Two authorities 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. This major contribution to the study of argumentation will be of particular value to professionals and graduate students in speech communication, informal logic, rhetoric, critical thinking, linguistics, and philosophy.

    • Sales of Walton Informal Logic indicates strength of this market
    • An advanced book, not a textbook, that could do very well for us given the reputation of authors (Amsterdam is major center for research in critical reasoning)
