Abstract

When evaluating the arguer instead of the argument, we soon find ourselves confronted with a puzzling situation: What seems to be a virtue in one argumentative situation could very well be called a vice in another. This talk will present the idea that there are in fact two roles an arguer has to master – and with them four sometimes very different sets of virtues.

This talk will present the idea that there are in fact two roles an arguer has to master – and with them four sometimes very different sets of virtues.
