Are Humans Poor at Arguing? From the ‘Argumentative Theory of Reasoning’ back to a Rhetorical Theory of Argumentation

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

Starting from Sperber and Mercier’s theory (2011) on therelationship between reasoning and arguing, we will try torethink the link between rhetoric and argumentation. UsingAristotelian rhetoric as a theoretical framework, we will focuson two related features: 1) the nature and the role ofargumentation inferences in classical models of rhetoric; 2)the role of normativity in assessing a naturalistic descriptionof what we make when we argue.
