ARGUMENTATION AND SPEECH ACTS Monographic issue in Informal Logic: call for papers. RESEARCH GROUP ActArg SCIENTIFIC UNIT OF EXCELLENCE FiloLab-ugr Department of Philosophy I, University of Granada, Spain. Topic: Argumentation theorists find it natural to speak of acts of arguing and speech-acts of arguing. An account of argumentation as a speech-act is meant to be of help, if not fundamental, for the analysis and appraisal of argumentative discourse and dialogue, which is argumentation theory’s main goal.

Its scope can be global affecting all uses of language, or alternatively be restricted to some specific areas of discourse, or to some specific terms and phrases. This volume offers a comprehensive survey of the varieties and subtleties of nondescriptivist and non-representationalist views currently discussed in the philosophy of language, meta-semantics and meta-ethics, which are rooted in the two main sources of contemporary expressivism: the approach to the meaning of ethical terms derived from meta-ethical emotivism, and the pragmatic approach to ‘meaning as use’ that Wittgenstein displayed in his Philosophical Investigations.
