Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"By bringing to bear the pragma-dialectical orientation of the Amsterdam School, Walton enables us to reconceptualize fallacies as instances of failed communication, rather than incorrect interference."
—Lenore Langsdorf, Southern Illinois University-Carbondale
