Case Construction—Requirements and Options
Lecture no. 7 from the course: Argumentation: The Study of Effective Reasoning
Taught by Professor David Zarefsky | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
The complex structure of argument discussed in Lecture 6 can be termed a case: the pattern of arguments used to support a claim. In assembling a case, arguers must be sure to address all the issues raised by the claim in the particular situation. Addressing the issues will satisfy an initial burden of proof. In meeting these requirements, arguers have choices about what arguments to use and how to arrange them.
