This chapter examines the nature of practical argumentation in the real world, and shows how abstract argumentation and logical argumentation can be used to present diverse examples of practical argumentation in a formal way. The discussions cover argumentation for thinking about questions; argumentation that raises further questions; polemical argumentation; speculational argumentation; coalitions of arguments working in harmony; making the same point in different ways; analysis of intrinsic and extrinsic factors; selective and formative argumentation; and reflecting natural language in logic.
