This volume aims to present authoritative and challenging studies on argumentation strictly related to the work of lawyers and judges when arguing in trial. The broad and interdisciplinary discussions on argumentation presented here show well how dialogue between legal philosophy and other different scientific domains dealing with legal reasoning should be possible and effective.

The first part of the book is dedicated to the pragma-dialectical analysis of the Aristotelian views on rhetoric, to an explanation of the use of “strategic manoeuvring” in a legale case and to the relevance of argumentative schemes in legal interpretation, concluding with an essay on the distinction between rationality and reasonableness.

The second part of the book is dedicated to some philosophical perspectives, stressing out the fundamental role of ancient Greek philosophy for argumentative studies (particularly in their linguistic dimension), and to the essential relationship between ontology, ethics and logic in legal practice.

All issues in the volume are discussed in the light of different approaches: from a more “continental” to a clearly “analytic” one. Each Author provides many insights which are only in part overlapping: a situation which must be regarded as an opportunity for argumentative investigations.
