SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
Pragmatics and Dialectics of Argument
The Special Issue of the Journal “Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric”
K. Budzynska, F. van Eemeren & M. Koszowy (Eds.)
This special issue on “Pragmatics and Dialectics of Argument” is the third of a series of special issues dedicated to argumentation in the journal “Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric” (SLGR). The previous two issues were dedicated to major research strands in the philosophy of argument (vol. 29, 2009; in its introduction to “Informal Logic”, the “Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy” says of SLGR that it has “published important special issue on the field”), and the computational approaches to argumentation (vol. 36, 2011). The volume will be built around two chapters concerning the most general and important topics in pragmatics and dialectics of argument: “Speech Acts and Argument” (Ch. I), and “Argumentation in a Dialogue” (Ch. II).
