Argumentation Studies addresses the activities and principles through which people reason:
- To persuade others through verbal or other forms of communication
- Collaboratively or competitively
- On any topic where information, knowledge, or claims conflict or are inconsistent
Expertise in argumentation provides unique & powerful training for a range of careers from human resources and conflict resolution to policy development, research, and education.
The interdisciplinary PhD program in Argumentation Studies:
- Builds on 40 years of the Informal logic movement in the Department of Philosophy and the current interdisciplinary environment of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation & Rhetoric (CRRAR)
- Complements that longstanding strength with perspectives and applications from across the traditional academic disciplines and various professional fields at Windsor:
