An Exploration of Form and Force in Rhetoric and Argumentation
Argumentation theory and the rhetoric of assent
A collection of essays focusing on the question when, if ever, assent to a proposition is justified. From a variety of perspectives, the contributors seek an alternative to the dissensus bred by scepticism and the consensus bred by faithful adherence to dogma.
