Argumentation devices in reasoning about health

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Health controversies are infused with products of expert reasoning, often interpreted by non-experts. To understand these controversies, we must pay closer attention both to the field-dependent devices that characterize expert reasoning, and to how nonexperts engage with experts' evidence and reasoning in their own argumentative practices. We describe two argumentation devices that have emerged in medical research and discuss the role of these devices within health controversies.
