MC13.3 Models of Argumentation

Dynamic and Dialogical Models of Argumentation, Logic, and Debate in Pre- Modern Sources

Coordination: Sara Uckelman

Abstract

Research in the history of reasoning (logic, argumentation) has shown that pre-modern developments in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia have distinctive dynamic and dialogical characteristics. As a result, these developments have much more in common with each other than they have with the tradition of 20th-century mathematical logic. We can make precise these shared features by building formal models of cases and theories of reasoning. These formal models are built using recent technical developments in both mathematical logic and in computer science, and with them we can clarify the relationship between argumentation or debate and epistemic foundations and advance our understanding of the philosophical, epistemological, historical, and social content and context of these theories of logic, reasoning, and argumentation
