Intrinsic Versus Instrumental Values of Argumentation: The Rhetorical Dimension of Argumentation [Book Review]

Argumentation 24 (4):453-474 (2010)

Then I propose and argue for a fifth one by defending a conception of acts of arguing as having a rhetorical dimension that provides conditions for characterizing good argumentation, understood as argumentation that justifies a target-claim.
