Argumentation is not only done in theoretical research, and in the final part of an empirical article or monograph. The relevance and situating of the research is argued, as well as methodological and theoretical choices, and interpretations and findings. There are numerous “small” arguments in a research publication, and at the same time, the publication is a “big” argument in itself. A dissertation is an argued research contribution. All the “small” arguments should support the “big” argument.
In this course argumentation is discussed theoretically and practically. The lectures and conversations will thematize logical and philosophical aspects of arguing, but also perspectives from everyday practice of res. Examples from research texts are used in order to discuss how arguments are done in practice, and how they may be done.
