Definition: Argumenting is a form of discussing or debating in which disagreement is expressed, attempting to persuade someone of something, by giving reasons for accepting a particular conclusion.
The general structure of an A is that of premises (typically in the form of propositions, statements or sentences) in support of a claim: the conclusion.
A can be supported deduction (providing a gurantee of the truth of the conclusion) or induction (providing proof or reasons supporting the probable truth of the conclusion).
The standards and criteria used in evaluating arguments and their forms of reasoning are studied in logic. Ways of effectively formulating arguments are studied in rhetoric.
