Abstract

In this paper the theoretical power of the concept of robustness is discussed in order to characterize the argumentative competence of a speaker. This notion is countered with the extended use of the idea complexity. As a general background some empirical results are used to support the theoretical discussion. The paper mainly relies on the theory of cultural cognition to situate the category of robustness and offers particular criteria to specify the possible operationalization of the notion. These criteria could later be applied, and even tested, in the analysis of other social behaviours that involve collective intentionality, cooperation and recursivity.

Keywords: argumentation, collective intentionality, complexity, epistemic revision, robustness.
