Extending presuppositions to discourse: a tribute to Eddo Rigotti
LOUIS DE SAUSSURE, University of Neuchâtel
Argumentation, a keyword in Eddo Rigotti’s career, is – obviously – directly connected to three anthropological domains (at least): i) logic, rationality and cognition; ii) epistemic attitudes and belief change iii) language, discourse and human verbal interaction. Thus Eddo Rigotti is always interested in how people come to believe propositions brought forward by other people; he is always ready to go on investigating the question of which argument schemes speakers use when they discuss, share and try to enhance their comprehension of the world and of other people, the management of their audience, and eventually come to influence other people by means of sound and fallacious arguments, by means of propositions and connotations, of emotional attitudes etc.
