I’m pleased to announce here on RAIL that the journal Cogency has allowed open access to it’s first four issues. I’m not sure if they plan to continue this policy, as, for instance, Informal Logic does, but for now it’s a great opportunity to check out what is already a diverse and interesting array of articles by many of the leading scholars in our field. (How they let an article of mine slip into the mix is anyone’s guess!)

Cogency Vol. 2 No. 2: Special Issue on Wittgenstein and Argumentation


The latest issue of the journal Cogency focuses on the relationship between the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein and argumentation theory.  Having had the good fortune to write one of the articles myself and thereby to have an early look at the contents, I feel confident in saying that it’s a pretty interesting issue.  Click on the image above for an enlarged view of the table of contents.

As part of the mission of RAIL is to keep readers informed of new publications, journals, and articles of interest, I’ve arranged with the editor to post announcements here when new issues of Cogency become available.  I’ll be doing the same thing for Informal Logic.  If you’d like to have your informal logic/argumentation-themed journal similarly featured please drop me a line and let me know.

For now, those interested in some past issues of Cogency can peruse their tables of contents here: Cogency Vol. 1, No 1 and here: Cogency Vol.2, No 1.
