The paper is a critique of discourse theory and argumentation theory of truth, in particular in the version of Wolfgang Becker. One of the main criticism is that the structure of arguments is designed in such a way as to guide a process of cognising that the truth criteria of the claim are fulfilled. This implies that argumentation (and argumentation theory) presupposes independent truth criteria. Hence an argumentation theory of truth is viciously circular.

Abstract

The paper is a critique of discourse theory and argumentation theory of truth, in particular in the version of Wolfgang Becker. One of the main criticism is that the structure of arguments is designed in such a way as to guide a process of cognising that the truth criteria of the claim are fulfilled. This implies that argumentation (and argumentation theory) presupposes independent truth criteria. Hence an argumentation theory of truth is viciously circular.
