Abstract

Arguments must be convincing. Therefore, we must provide some criteria to decide about this matter. Some people think that this is not possible. In that case, it would be impossible to solve controversies. I would like to revisit the criteria of relevance, sufficiency and acceptability, proposed by Johnson & Blair and to test their applicability to everyday controversial arguments, especially, their flexibility to adjust to context.
