Virtue and Argument: Taking Character Into Account

Informal Logic 33 (1):22-32 (2013)

Authors
Abstract
In this paper we consider the prospects for an account of good argument that takes the character of the arguer into consideration. We conclude that although there is much to be gained by identifying the virtues of the good arguer and by considering the ways in which these virtues can be developed in ourselves and in others, virtue argumentation theory does not offer a plausible alternative definition of good argument
