Sound arguments

Sound arguments Sound can be an argument. To make this claim, this essay eschews traditional formalist definitions of argument in favor of Wayne Brockriede's perspectivism. I focus on how sound satisfies the three conditions of argumentation: inference, choice, and common value framework. Then, I outline three unique features of sound argument: it is embodied, immediate, and immersive. These unique features beget a style of reasoning that provokes visceral memories, conveys urgency, and attunes arguers. I also theorize three new criteria for evaluating sound reasonableness: force, velocity, and masking. Sound arguments may exert too much or too little force, occur at too quick or slow of a velocity, or may mask another's position. If a sound argument violates any or all three of these conditions, then it is no longer considered an argument. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Argumentation and Advocacy Taylor & Francis
