Abstract

Many argumentation theorists have adopted the view that argumentation may be approached from three different perspectives: the logical, the dialectical and the rhetorical—which I refer to as the Triumvirate.). According to Wenzel (1990), the conceptual foundation for this Triumvirate is the distinction between argumentation as product, as process and as procedure (the Tripartite Distinction.). In this paper, I want to raise questions about the Triumvirate View and the Tripartite Distinction on which it is based.
