Abstract

HOYOS MORALES, JORGE IVÁN. THE COMMITMENT TO RATIONALITY IN THE PRAGMA-DIALECTICAL APPROACH. Ideas y Valores [online]. 2018, vol.67, n.168, pp.199-217. ISSN 0120-0062.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15446/ideasyvalores.v67n168.58668.

The article addresses the issue of "rationality" in the standard version of the pragma-dialectic approach, which aims at overcoming the dichotomy between the normative and descriptive aspects that are evident in studies on argumentation. It points out that when conceptualizing its notion of rationality, pragma-dialectics explicitly assumes some of Popper's postulates. Given that said conceptualization also includes elements from Searle and Grice, the paper also inquires into whether these philosophers' ideas on rationality are implicitly present in the commitment to rationality. Likewise, it discusses some connections between Aristotelian thought and the formulations of Popper, Searle, and Grice, in order to clarify the pragma-dialectic conception of rationality and foster an enriching return to the sources of argumentation.

Keywords : Aristotle; philosophical ideal; pragma-dialectics; rationality; argumentation theory.
