WWA Reviewed in Teaching Philosophy

A very nice review of Why We Argue has just appeared in the journal Teaching Philosophy. Emily Esch concludes her review with a statement that captures Aikin and Talisse's aims in the book well:
Why We Argue makes a compelling case for the significance of argument in our everyday lives, but what sets this book apart is the insistence on the importance of what we owe to others when we are arguing. This emphasis on the social aspects is an important contribution to the literature on teaching the nature and purpose of argument.
