  • Abductive Reasoningby Douglas Walton

    University of Alabama Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    This book examines three areas in which abductive reasoning is especially important: medicine, science, and law. The reader is introduced to abduction and shown how it has evolved historically into the framework of conventional wisdom in logic. Discussions draw upon recent techniques used in artificial intelligence, particularly in the areas of multi-agent... more...

  • Argument Evaluation and Evidenceby Douglas Walton

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    ?This monograph poses a series of key problems of evidential reasoning and argumentation. It then offers solutions achieved by applying recently developed computational models of argumentation made available in artificial intelligence. Each problem is posed in such a way that the solution is easily understood. The book progresses from confronting... more...

  • Argumentation Methods for Artificial Intelligence in Lawby Douglas Walton

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 209.00

    During a recent visit to China to give an invited lecture on legal argumentation I was asked a question about conventional opinion in western countries. If legal r- soning is thought to be important by those both inside and outside the legal prof- sion, why does there appear to be so little attention given to the study of legal logic? This was a hard... more...

  • Argumentation Schemes for Presumptive Reasoningby Douglas Walton

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 40.95

    Recent concerns with the evaluation of argumentation in informal logic and speech communication center around nondemonstrative arguments that lead to tentative or defeasible conclusions based on a balance of considerations. Such arguments do not appear to have structures of the kind traditionally identified with deductive and inductive reasoning, but... more...

  • Burden of Proof, Presumption and Argumentationby Douglas Walton

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 28.00

    This book explains how burden of proof and presumption work as powerful devices in argumentation, based on studying many clearly explained legal and non-legal examples. more...

  • Character Evidenceby Douglas Walton

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 209.00

    The theory in the book is based on the latest research in argumentation theory, and especially on new applications of artificial intelligence (AI) to legal argumentation. The methodology of the book derives from recent work in argumentation theory and AI in which forms of reasoning other than deductive and inductive have been the focus of much investigation.... more...

  • Dialog Theory for Critical Argumentationby Douglas Walton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 165.00

    Because of the need to devise systems for electronic communication on the internet, multi-agent computing is moving to a model of communication as a structured conversation between rational agents. For example, in multi-agent systems, an electronic agent searches around the internet, and collects certain kinds of information by asking questions to... more...

  • Fundamentals of Critical Argumentationby Douglas Walton

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 36.00

    Presents the basic tools for the identification, analysis, and evaluation of common arguments. more...

  • Goal-based Reasoning for Argumentationby Douglas Walton

    Cambridge University Press 2015; US$ 28.00

    This book provides a practical argumentation model for intelligent means end-reasoning, a distinctive type of reasoning used for problem-solving and decision-making. more...

  • Informal Fallaciesby Douglas Walton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1987; US$ 173.00

    The basic question of this monograph is: how should we go about judging arguments to be reasonable or unreasonable? Our concern will be with argument in a broad sense, with realistic arguments in natural language. The basic object will be to engage in a normative study of determining what factors, standards, or procedures should be adopted or appealed... more...
