John Randolph of Roanoke and the "Argumentum Ad Hominem."
Geiser, Michael P.
Argumentation and Advocacy, v36 n4 p210-17 Spr 2000
Analyzes John Randolph's use of "ad hominem" arguments, in an excerpt from the Yazoo Claims debate in 1805, in light of Douglas Walton's research into the "ad hominem." Claims the arguments employed by Randolph confirm Walton's contention that the "ad hominem" is not inherently fallacious, but is a defensible form of argument. (NH)
