Abstract

Nowadays, the Western academic domain is enriched by the inclusion of many scholars originating from other academic traditions. A fundamental problem facing such scholars is to assimilate the norms of the Western academic domain. One effective way of cultivating this common ground is to develop teaching materials that integrate insights from the field of argumentation. Due to its ‘critical-rationalist’ starting points, I argue that the pragma-dialectical theory is particularly suitable for this task.

Applying Argumentation Theory to Cultivate Academic Common Ground
