An interpretive perspective on argumentation: A research editorial

Academic Article


  • An interpretive view of communication, with its philosophical assumptions about the nature of persons and the nature of communication, provides a perspective from which a variety of scholars study argumentation. In this essay, arguments supporting the value of the interpretive perspective are advanced, and criticisms of it are answered by show­ing how those criticisms are grounded in philosophical assumptions contrary to interpretive perspectives. © 1987 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
