The first and most thoroughly developed audience-oriented argumentation book, Argumentation and Critical Decision Making presents argumentation as a cooperative, communicative process. This book examines the general principles of argument in a rigorous yet readable manner and then applies those principles to different spheres of life – law, science, religion, business, and politics – to explore how conventions of argument change when applied to these real world arenas. Focusing on the dynamics of decision making and using real life examples to illustrate principles, Argumentation and Critical Decision Making aims to help readers develop practical argumentation skills within the world of their daily lives.
