Special Session at PhiLang


Following the success of WILL 2016, an argumentation forum organised by the department of English and General Linguistics in Łódź, PhiLang 2017 will, for the first time, include a special session on the Philosophy of Argumentation.

Plenary speaker:

Jean Wagemans University of Amsterdam

Analogy, Similarity, and the Periodic Table of Arguments

Applications to present are now closed, but registration for participation is open. Priority will be given to topics exploring the relationship between Linguistics and Philosophy of Language and Argumentation, however, we also invite discussion of:

* The use of analogy in argument

* The theory of fallacies

* Logic in argumentation

We plan to publish the papers presented in a special volume on the Philosophy of Argumentation in our series with Peter Lang.

All enquiries and expressions of interest should be addressed to dr Martin Hinton - mdhinton(at)tlen.pl.
