    Springer 2005; US$ 209.00

  • Character Evidenceby Douglas Walton

    Springer 2006; US$ 209.00

  • Topical Relevance in Argumentationby Douglas Walton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1982; US$ 98.00

    It is a longstanding if not altogether coherent tradition of logic and rhetorical studies that an argument can be incorrect or fallacious in virtue of some proposition in it being ?irrelevant?. This monograph clarifies that tradition. Non-classical propositional calculi, including relevance logics and relatedness logics, are juxtaposed against conversational... 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?

    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.
