Argumentation 9 (2):291-304 (1995)

Abstract
In this paper I demonstrate that most textbook accounts of the linked/convergent distinction fail to conform to the widespread intuition that all valid arguments ought to be classified as linked arguments. I also show that standard textbook accounts of linkage and convergence cannot provide a satisfactory treatment of fallacies of irrelevance and, due to their general insensitivity to the epistemic context in which arguments are offered, must be supplemented by subjective accounts of linkage and convergence which appeal exclusively to authorial beliefs and intentions
Keywords Fallacies of irrelevance  linked and convergent arguments  objective vs. subjective tests of linkage and convergence  relevance  validity
