From the introduction

As a particular form of verbal interaction, argumentation is an empirical fact. Practically every transaction, especially instituted ones, includes argumentation, e.g., scientific, philosophical, and ethical debates, conflicts (Eisenberg & Garvey, 1981; Miller, Danaher, & Forbes, 1986), negotiations (Firth, 1995), deliberations of committees, discussions, disputes (Gottman, 1979), court trials (Riley, Hollihan, & Freadhoff, 1987), political confrontations (Trognon & Larrue, 1994), and countless other social situations (see Dascal, van Eemeren, Rigotti, Stati, & Rocci, 2005).
The aim of this chapter is to review the research on argumentation during interaction, and to organize the findings based on a view of argumentation as a continuum that goes from informal arguments to dialogical demonstrations. To argue is to accomplish a discourse act. We begin here by defining this act. Then we study what it looks like in an interaction, first in its surface discursive form and then in its logical forms. Finally, we look at how people grasp argumentation as they use it.
