Abstract

One form of analogical argument proceeds by comparing a disputed case (the target) with an agreed upon case (the source) to try to resolve the dispute. There is a variation on preceding form of argument not yet identified in the theoretical literature. This variation involves multiple sources, and it requires that the sources be combined or blended for the argument to work. Arguments supporting the Triple Contract are shown to possess this structure.

The Triple Contract: A Case Study of a Source Blending Analogical Argument

University of Windsor

One form of analogical argument proceeds by comparing a disputed case (the target) with an agreed upon case (the source) to try to resolve the dispute. There is a variation on preceding form of argument not yet identified in the theoretical literature. This variation involves multiple sources, and it requires that the sources be combined or blended for the argument to work. Arguments supporting the Triple Contract are shown to possess this structure.
