  • Why have some objected to this suggestion? What can we learn from their objections?
  • How can the various theoretical perspectives that make up argumentation theory, such as informal logic, rhetoric, dialectics, dialogue theory, and discourse analysis, account for multi-modal arguments?
  • How can we construct a comprehensive theory of argument that makes room for, explains, and allows us to assess, arguments of this sort?

In this course we consider the questions that this raises.

Lectures and discussion will emphasize the development of perspectives that can be used to analyze, explain and evaluate such arguments, and on the analysis of concrete examples of multi-modal arguments and will consider objections to “visual arguments” and other forms of multi-modal argumentation.
