Burleson, Brant R.
Journal of the American Forensic Association, v16 n4 p222-31 Spr 1980
Continues an ongoing debate with Charles Willard and other argumentation scholars. Examines the claim that arguments are essentially nondiscursive phenomena by reviewing relevant empirical evidence. Assesses the utility of formal characterizations and hermeneutic inquiry as tools of argument analysis by considering the practical problems intrinsic to the analytic process. (JMF)
