Description

Originally published in 1967. This is an examination of warrant statements – statements which indicated something about the grounds on behalf of some further judgement, choice or action. The first part of the study is concerned with the role of warrant statements in theoretical discourse; while the second part concerns their role in practical discourse. Also examined are necessity, probability, knowing, seeing and the complex of terms which allow us to introduce an argumentative structure into discourse.

Contents

  1. Warrant statements. 2 The Alethic Modalities. 3 Knowing. 4 Perceptual Terms. 5 The Diction of Argument. 6 Variations on a a Four-part Theme. 7 Value Judgements as Warrant Statements. 8 Facts and Values
