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.

The journal SLGR is published under the auspices of the Polish Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science, and is one of Poland’s top philosophy journals with an international profile and indexed on lists such as Scopus, ERIH and IndexCopernicus. The unique profile of Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric lies in exploiting the three classical fields of the medieval trivium in the studies of communication. The journal was founded in 1980 by Witold Marciszewski – the logician and philosopher whose research is deeply rooted in the tradition of the Lvov-Warsaw School. Since 1980, SLGR has published 51 volumes. The SLGR journal is published under the Open Access policy, so all the papers can be downloaded for free.
