Chris Reed and Chris Tindale are delighted to announce today, at the 7th Conference on Argumentation of the International Society for the Study of Argumentation (ISSA 2010), the release of a new festschrift that honours one of the leaders of the field: Professor Douglas Walton.
Dialectics, Dialogue and Argumentation examines Walton’s theories and the influence that they have had both in philosophy and in computational sciences and legal theory. The volume draws together seventeen papers from researchers in argumentation, speech communication, computer science, AI and jurisprudence to reflect on the profound impact that Walton’s work has had. The table of contents is available online.
It is published by College Publications, and is available on Amazon.

A new monograph on Argumentation Schemes co-authored by Doug Walton (Windsor), Fabrizio Macagno (Milan) and Chris Reed, and published by CUP is now out and available.
This book provides a systematic analysis of many common argumentation schemes and a compendium of 96 schemes. The study of these schemes, or forms of argument that capture stereotypical patterns of human reasoning, is at the core of argumentation research. Surveying all aspects of argumentation schemes from the ground up, the book takes the reader from the elementary exposition in the first chapter to the latest state of the art in the research efforts to formalize and classify the schemes, outlined in the last chapter. It provides a systematic and comprehensive account, with notation suitable for computational applications that increasingly make use of argumentation schemes.
