Bridging the gap between applied ethics and ethical theory, Ethical Argumentation draws on recent research in argumentation theory to develop a more realistic model of how ethical justification actually works. Douglas Walton presents a new model of ethical argumentation in which ethical justification is analyzed as a defeasible form of argumentation considered in a balanced dialogue. Walton's new model employs techniques such as: asking the appropriate critical questions, probing accepted values, finding nonexplicit assumptions in an ethical argument, and deconstructing emotive terms and persuasive definitions. This book will be of significant interest to scholars and advanced students in applied ethics and theory.

About the Author:

Douglas Walton holds the Assumption University Chair in Argumentation Studies and is Distinguished Research Fellow of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation, and Rhetoric at the University of Windsor.

Review:

Ethical Argumentation explains and defends a systematic, imaginative, and highly plausible model of ethical reasoning worthy of the careful attention of anyone interested in moral theory or applied ethics. (Carl Wellman, Washington University)

Walton shows that critical discussion about ethical matters is the place where rhetoric, logic, and dialectic meet. . . .he significantly advances our understanding of this most important arena for human interaction. (David Zarefsky, Northwestern University)

. . .His observations remind us that ethical discussion is a topic worthy of serious discourse, too important to be dismissed by positivists or postmodernists. Walton's "new" model of ethical argumentation. . . .provides some small steps toward closing the existing gap between real problems needing solutions in applied ethics and abstract ethical theories. (Andrea Birch, Brenau University)
