The abstract character of traditional logic cuts the subject off from practical considerations; Mr Toulmin enquires why this is so, and shows how an alternative conception can be of more general value. Starting from an examination of the actual procedures in different fields of argument - the practice, as opposed to the theory, of logic - he discloses a richer variety than is allowed for by any available system. He argues that jurisprudence rather than mathematics should be the logician's model in analysing rational procedures, and that logic should be a comparative and not a purely formal study. These suggestions lead to conclusions which many will consider controversial; though they will also be widely recognized as interesting and illuminating. This book extends into general philosophy lines of enquiry already sketched by Mr Toulmin in his earlier books on ethics and the philosophy of science. The ordinary reader will find in it the same clarity and intelligibility; and the professional philosopher will acknowledge the same power to break new ground (and circumvent old difficulties) by posing fresh and stimulating questions+-+6627156605324183973ocn001446330book19500.59Toulmin, StephenAn examination of the place of reason in ethics179475ocn000375428book19650.53Toulmin, StephenThe discovery of timeHistory+-+9793531775167172ocn001067022book19530.56Toulmin, StephenThe philosophy of science; an introductionHistory160952ocn000581644book19730.39Janik, AllanWittgenstein's ViennaBiographyGuidebooks+-+4072676215156621ocn436294230book20010.47Toulmin, StephenReturn to reasonStephen Toulmin argues that the potential for reason to improve our lives has been hampered by a serious imbalance in our pursuit of knowledge. The centuries-old dominance of rationality, a mathematical mode of reasoning modeled on theory and universal certainties, has diminished the value of reasonableness, a system of humane judgments based on personal experience and practice. To this day, academic disciplines such as economics and professions such as law and medicine often value expert knowledge and abstract models above the testimony of diverse cultures and the practical experience of individuals. Now, at the beginning of a new century, Toulmin sums up a lifetime of distinguished work and issues a powerful call to redress the balance between rationality and reasonableness. His vision does not reject the valuable fruits of science and technology, but requires awareness of the human consequences of our discoveries. Toulmin argues for the need to confront the challenge of an uncertain and unpredictable world, not with inflexible ideologies and abstract theories, but by returning to a more humane and compassionate form of reason, one that accepts the diversity and complexity that is human nature as an essential beginning for all intellectual inquiry+-+2049559215151653ocn000965142book19620.53Toulmin, StephenThe architecture of matterHistory+-+3593531775131839ocn000193203book19610.53Toulmin, StephenThe fabric of the heavens; the development of astronomy and dynamicsHistoryThe story of our relationship with the stars and their celestial cousins is long, involving, and full of surprises. The Fabric of the Heavens, by science historians Stephen Toulmin and June Goodfield, outlines thinking about astronomy and dynamics from "pre-theoretical" Babylonian times to the Newtonian revolution that seeded our modern conceptions of space. Fully integrating the two cultures of science and the humanities, the authors find evidence of new thinking in Milton's writing and medieval tapestries as well as classic scientific and pre-scientific works. Using language that is beautiful, compelling and precise, they trace the threads of history which are woven into today's science (which, they predict, will find itself woven into something even more startlingly unrecognisable in years hence). Why were the ancients so fascinated by the sky and stars? Interestingly, it seems that their concerns were mostly practical; theological significance took longer to attach itself to the patterns up above. Agricultural and navigational concerns, once resolved, gave way to deeper philosophical, mythological and religious curiosity--which used the mathematical tools of its predecessors to great effect. The lives and works of Aristotle, Copernicus, Galileo and Newton are all thoroughly explored, and it is easier to see the continuity between them and their contemporaries in the breadth of this writing. First published in 1962, The Fabric of the Heavens was one of the first postmodern studies of the development of physical science; even were it not such a pleasure to read, it would still merit careful study+-+8393531775123346ocn000639324book19610.59Toulmin, StephenForesight and understanding : an enquiry into the aims of science118623ocn000393907book19720.56Toulmin, StephenHuman understanding116126ocn020318529book19900.50Toulmin, StephenCosmopolis : the hidden agenda of modernityHistoryA reinterpretation of the intellectual framework which has girded the western imagination and sets its goals over the last three centuries+-+1383531775106913ocn008430125book19820.53Toulmin, StephenThe return to cosmology : postmodern science and the theology of nature+-+801905570532494512ocn769188825file19960.50Beyond theory changing organizations through participationAction Research is one of the most practical and down-to-earth ways of doing research into working life. Beyond Theory draws on examples and actual cases to discuss action research within the framework of the modern, and postmodern, theory of science debate. While action research has been much criticized by the traditionalists, the book reflects a convergence between action research and positions emerging out of the critique of scientific traditionalism. Discussions between these two fields of knowledge, originally so very different, can enrich both. The book will be useful not only to researchers and academics but to anyone who is interested in the role and use of knowledge in social and organizational development+-+917346100693519ocn004342424book19570.59Toulmin, StephenMetaphysical beliefs; three essays87223ocn004496180book19790.56Toulmin, StephenAn introduction to reasoning+-+151667975532484811ocn014595220book19610.59Rhys, Hedley HowellSeventeenth century science and the arts77318ocn016003507book19880.63Jonsen, Albert RThe abuse of casuistry : a history of moral reasoningIn this engaging study, the authors put casuistry into its historical context, tracing the origin of moral reasoning in antiquity, its peak during the sixteenth and early seventeenth century, and its subsequent fall into disrepute from the mid-seventeenth century+-+451415570554916ocn000315118book19710.66Hanson, Norwood RussellWhat I do not believe, and other essays5127ocn001207413book19760.56Toulmin, StephenKnowing and acting : an invitation to philosophy3607ocn001333576book19630.47Toulmin, StephenNight sky at Rhodes251ocn010028900book19790.53Nilstun, ToreMoral reasoning : a study in the moral philosophy of S.E.

Toulmin provides a superior means of analyzing the normative, empirical, and political components of public policy arguments within the tradition of liberal-democratic political theory. Political theorists, especially those which draw upon the 'good reasons' school in ethics, have made some progress toward the analysis of policy arguments. However their work has serious limitations, especially with regard to the use of empirical research. Theorists in the field of policy analysis have suggested means of integrating analysis of normative questions into their studies. The primary limitation of these methods is that they tend to undermine the institution-critical nature of normative theory. By extending Toulmin's logic of argumentation through enabling it to handle the complexity of policy arguments, and by applying it to the specific characteristics of policy arguments, a more suitable method can be devised. I contend that the analysis of policy arguments through the approach initiated by Toulmin can establish a new type of epistemology for political research that bridges much of the gap between the concerns of political theorists and policy analysts. I employ an extended illustrative example to support my position, taken from Mead's essay on welfare policy: Beyond Entitlement (1986). Continued development of a methodology for the analysis of policy arguments could establish the feasibility of a pragmatic paradigm for the conduct of normative political theory21ocn070994618book19750.96Conn, RobertModels, names and reference21ocn023526232book19900.92Ortiz-Seda, Darnyd WA critical approach to the short story in English : Toulmin's rational model of argumentation22ocn019452741book19591.00Arbaugh, George EValue and ontology in contemporary British ethics22ocn008391423book19760.81Hofer, John RobertToulmin's theory of rationality : a pragmatic epistemology11ocn012803398book19690.47Byrns, James HHumphrey's acceptance speech : a Toulminian analysis11ocn819531261book20120.47Cutshaw, Daniel VerloSifting the commonplace : topoi and the grounds for argument in classical and modern rhetoric11ocn016755354book19741.00Wallace, Phillip ArthurScientific explanation: challenges to the deductive model+-+4072676215+-+4072676215Fri Mar 21 15:15:17 EDT 2014batch41024
