Scrutinizing Argumentation in Practice contains a selection of papers reflecting upon the use of argumentation in real life contexts. The first five sections are devoted to argumentation in a specific institutional context: scientific controversies, argumentation in politics, argumentation in a legal context, argumentation in education, argumentation in an interpersonal context. The last section deals with strategic maneuvering as a vital concept in studying argumentation in practice.

“This volume in the Argumentation in Context series has much to recommend it. The international scope of the researchers provides a truly diverse set of contexts for locating actual argumentative practices. The chapters cover examiniations of argumentation ractices in the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, France, Italy, and Japan. This broad array of cultural context demonstrates the utility of modern theories of argumentation as sensitive and adaptable to a variety of local, regional, and epochal practices.”
