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...

“It?s like talking to a brick wall? and “We?ll have to agree to disagree? are popular sayings referring to the frustrating experience of discussing issues with people who seem to be beyond the reach of argument.
