Abstract

Contemporary theories of argument understand it as a way to resolve the disagreement that precipitates it. But in real life circumstances, arguing often has the opposite effect -- extending, deepening and prolonging disagreement. I discuss a variety of examples and the issues that they raise for argumentation theory.

But in real life circumstances, arguing often has the opposite effect -- extending, deepening and prolonging disagreement. I discuss a variety of examples and the issues that they raise for argumentation theory.
