Abstract

A sketch of the arguments for adding the logic of evaluation to the areas of argumentation that have been partly mapped and are worth further work by workers in rhetoric, argumentation, communication, critical thinking, and informal logic. Brief coverage of: (i) the arguments that there cannot be any legitimate logic of evaluation; of (ii) the nature of evaluation (conceptions and misconceptions); and of (iii) the technical apparatus of evaluation logic.
