Effective argumentation can be a mediating force between opposing sides and a knowledge- building activity Defining Argumentation Argumentation is the mechanics of influence and structure of reason…create meaning… fluid and evolving Persuasion is the outcome...the work that goes into persuading is argumentation For the process of argumentation to be successful,  its participants must have a  high  tolerance for disagreement and be risk-takers in the process. Engaging in the process of argumentation is a self-risking enterprise. The most successful context for argumentation is those instances where the participants  are willing to be open and change their sense of the world around them.  Rationality and Reason in Argumentation Reason is our best chance to avoid violence when conflicting arises. Therefore, reasoning is the means to process differences between opposing forces. Argumentation is the structure of the reason…it also has the potential to open up a way  of knwowing Epistemology The question of Epistemology, HOW WE KNOW WHAT WE KNOW Many scholars believe, the way we come to know things is through language. In addition to providing a means to resolve conflict, argumentation also can function as a  means to create knowledge about the world around us.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
