“Scheming About Schemes”


Abstract: In the meta-theory of argument schemes several questions are investigated, among them what argument schemes are, and how they can be deployed in the evaluation of natural language arguments.  A number of distinctions are introduced and attempts are made to make them clear;  for example, the differences between descriptive and normative schemes, that between basic and non-basic schemes, and that between deductive and non-deductive schemes.  This project tries to take account of earlier contributions by (in alphabetical order) J.A. Blair, B. Garssen, L. Groarke and C. Tindale, D. Hitchcock, R. Pinto, H. Prakken, and D. Walton.
