   schema:description "Outstanding features of the book include: criticism of logical theory of encouraging faulty and misleading readings of an argument; an approach to the informal fallacies and the enthymeme that is based on the recognition of the limitations of the requirement that an argument to be reconstructed as a sequence of premises and conclusion; a treatment of certian paradoxes and of the Gettier problem that argues that there is something to resolve only because of the unwarranted assumption that formal logic is taken to having applications to fields other than itself; an emphasis on developing an alternative conflict resolution conception of argumentation."--Jacket."@en ;
