Persistence and Change: Paul Watzlawick's Influence on Presumption in Public Debate.
This paper presents a theory of presumption in public debate based upon Paul Watzlawick's principles of communication. The first section of the paper details briefly the nature of presumption in contemporary argumentation theory. The second section hypothesizes a role for presumption in public debate derived principally from Watzlawick's works. The final section suggests implications of a revised theory of presumption in public debate. (Author/FL)
