Abstract

When is an argument to be called one-sided? When is putting forward such an argument fallacious? How can we develop a model for critical discussion, such that a fallaciously one-sided argument corresponds to a violation of a discussion rule? These issues are dealt with within 'the limits of the dialogue model of argument' by specifying a type of persuasion dialogue in which an arguer can offer complex arguments to anticipate particular responses by a critic.
