In The Uses of Argument, first published in 1958, Stephen
Toulmin proposed a new model for the layout of arguments, with six
components: claim, data, warrant, qualifier, rebuttal, backing.
Toulmin s model has been appropriated, adapted and extended by
researchers in the fields of speech communications, philosophy and
artificial intelligence. The present volume aims to bring together
the best contemporary reflection in these fields on the Toulmin
model and its current appropriation. The volume includes 24
articles by 27 scholars from 10 countries. All the essays are newly
written, have been selected from among those received in response
to a call for papers, and have been revised extensively in response
to referees comments. They are not exegetical but substantive,
extending or challenging Toulmin s ideas in ways that make fresh
contributions to the theory of analysing and evaluating arguments.
Collectively, they represent the only comprehensive book-length
study of the Toulmin model. They point the way to new developments
in the theory of argument, including a typology of warrants, a
comprehensive theory of defeaters, a rapprochement with formal
logic, and a turn from propositions to speech acts as the
constituents of argument. "
