      About The Book

      Although fallacies have been common since Aristotle,

      until recently little attention has been devoted to identifying and defining

      them. Furthermore, the concept of fallacy itself has lacked a sufficiently

      clear meaning to make it a useful tool for evaluating arguments. Douglas

      Walton takes a new analytical look at the concept of fallacy and presents

      an up-to-date analysis of its usefulness for argumentation studies. Walton

      uses case studies illustrating familiar arguments and tricky deceptions

      in everyday conversation where the charge of fallaciousness is at issue.

      The numerous case studies show in concrete terms many practical aspects

      of how to use textual evidence to identify and analyze fallacies and to

      evaluate arguments as fallacious. Walton looks at how an argument is used

      in the context of conversation. He defines a fallacy as a conversational

      move, or sequence of moves, that is supposed to be an argument that contributes

      to the purpose of the conversation but in reality interferes with it. The

      view is a pragmatic one, based on the assumption that when people argue,

      they do so in a context of dialogue, a conventionalized normative framework

      that is goal-directed. Such a contextual framework is shown to be crucial

      in determining whether an argument has been used correctly. Walton also

      shows how examples of fallacies given in the logic textbooks characteristically

      turn out to be variants of reasonable, even if defeasible or questionable

      arguments, based on presumptive reasoning. This is the essence of the evaluation

      problem. A key thesis of the book, which must not be taken for granted

      as previous textbooks have so often done, is that you can spot a fallacy

      from how it was used in a context of dialogue. This is an innovative and

      even, as Walton notes, “a radical and controversial” theory

      of fallacy.
