Chapter Description

Public argument has been compromised by either/or argumentation strategies characterized by Lakoff and Johnson through the metaphor, “argument is war.”  This essay discusses the blocks to ethical argumentation and offers three models: classical rhetoric, Toulmin, and pragma-dialectics that provide theoretical and practical methods for recognizing and inventing good arguments.
