Abstract

The word 'logic' is conceptualized differently by logicians and by intercultural communication scholars and scholars of English as a second or foreign language (TESOL/TEFL scholars). Logicians emphasize the normative aspect of logic, whereas TESOL/TEFL scholars and intercultural communication scholars emphasize the linguistically relativistic aspect of logic. This paper lays out different senses of logic and attempts to examine how these different senses affect the theory of argument and argumentation, focusing on the theory of analysis and the theory of evaluation.

Senses of Logic and Their Implications for the Theory of Argument and Argumentation

McMaster University

The word 'logic' is conceptualized differently by logicians and by intercultural communication scholars and scholars of English as a second or foreign language (TESOL/TEFL scholars). Logicians emphasize the normative aspect of logic, whereas TESOL/TEFL scholars and intercultural communication scholars emphasize the linguistically relativistic aspect of logic. This paper lays out different senses of logic and attempts to examine how these different senses affect the theory of argument and argumentation, focusing on the theory of analysis and the theory of evaluation.
