Empirical Approaches to Argumentation

Approches empiriques de l’argumentation

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, July 03, 2014


The workshop seeks to initiate a dialogue between scholars from North America and their French speaking colleagues working in the field of argumentation. The invited speakers share an interest in the descriptive and empirical dimension in the study of argumentation. Irrespective of the theoretical framework within which each of the participants studies argumentation and the importance they may ascribe to normative considerations, they all agree that the study of empirical data and the description of real life argumentation are at the heart of argumentation studies. As a result, each of the invited speakers, in their respective work, pays attention to the linguistic mechanisms and to the interactional processes that characterise argumentative activity. The language of the workshop will be English.
