Deductivism Within Pragma-Dialectics

Argumentation 13 (1):1-16 (1999)

Leo Groarke
Trent University
The present paper elaborates a deductivist account of natural language argu-ment in the context of pragma-dialectics. It reviews earlier debates, criticizes some standard misconceptions in the literature, and argues that the identification and analysis of deductive argument schemes can be the basis of a compelling theory of argumentative discourse
