Abstract

However the term “culture” is defined, a culture becomes an argument culture when it is characterized by consciousness of audience, comfort with uncertainty, expectation of personal convictions, commitment to justification rather than formal proof, realization that the enterprise is essentially cooperative, and willingness to assume risks. Such a culture productively negotiates tensions between contingency and commitment, partisanship and restraint, personal conviction and sensitivity to audience, reasonableness and subjectivity, decision and nonclosure.

What Does an Argument Culture Look Like?

University of Windsor

However the term “culture” is defined, a culture becomes an argument culture when it is characterized by consciousness of audience, comfort with uncertainty, expectation of personal convictions, commitment to justification rather than formal proof, realization that the enterprise is essentially cooperative, and willingness to assume risks. Such a culture productively negotiates tensions between contingency and commitment, partisanship and restraint, personal conviction and sensitivity to audience, reasonableness and subjectivity, decision and nonclosure.
