Argumentative Thinking: An Introduction to the Special Issue on Psychology and Argumentation

Lance J. Rips
2009 Informal Logic  
This special issue of Informal Logic brings together a num-ber of traditions from the psychology and philosophy of argument. Psycho-logists' interest in argument typically arises in understanding how indivi-duals form and change their beliefs. Thus, theories of argument can serve as models of the structure of justi-fications for belief, as methods of diagnosing errors in beliefs, and as prototypes for learning. The articles in this issue illustrate all three of these connections.
