The MIT Press

This chapter proposes a framework for modeling argumentation. The key features of this framework are the clarification of the nature of arguments and counterarguments; the identification of canonical undercuts, which are the only undercuts that need to be taken into account; and the representation of argument trees and argument structures which provide a way of exhaustively collating arguments and counterarguments.

Keywords:   arguments, counterarguments, canonical undercuts, argument trees
