SANTIBANEZ, Cristián. Argumentation Theory as Applied Epistemology. Cinta moebio [online]. 2012, n.43, pp. 24-39. ISSN 0717-554X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-554X2012000100003.
In this paper the conception of argumentation theory as applied epistemology is discussed. The point of departure is the description of four perspectives that are considered as founders of the modern theory of argumentation, in order to observe whether there was a similar concept in those theories or if they provided the patterns to go into that direction. Further on the reasons why contemporary scholars have given this emphasis to the notion of argumentation theory is discussed.
