The aim of this special issue is to accomplish two tasks: 
(i) to sketch a map of contemporary research directions in the study of argumentation; for this purpose the issue focuses on prominent approaches to argumentation developed in such domains of inquiry as the informal logic movement, the pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation, formal logic, and methodology of science (the latter includes also the logico-methodological tradition of the Lvov-Warsaw School; and (ii) to introduce those formal logicians and methodologists of science who are not familiar with this field of inquiry to major research problems of informal logic and argumentation theory.
