“Dialogical Agreement in Argumentation: First Thoughts”

Disagreement has long held center stage in argumentation studies. In this work in progress, I argue that agreement is deserving of much more attention in argumentation than it has received. The paper begins by reviewing some of the existing argumentation literature directly discussing agreement. I then outline what I see to be four main types of agreement before reflecting on some of the implications this new categorization has for well-known theories in the field. The paper concludes by posing some open questions and motivating areas for future research.
