Toulmin Model Introduction

Toulmin suggests that Aristotelian logic with mathematical syllogisms, simply doesn't fit for the daily arguments. Claiming that the theoretical argument is irrelevant to the assessment of practical argument, he distinguishes between "practical and analytic arguments (Toulmin, 1958). In analytic arguments, arguers ground their claims on abstract, unchanging and universal principles; thus, the conclusion of an analytic argument such as "Socrates is mortal", is limited only with the premises of "All men are mortal and Socrates is a man." Our interest in analyzing argument in traditional logic is to decide whether we have a valid argument or not on the basis of premises.
