Philosopher Daniel H. Cohen studies language and the way we argue through reason.
Philosopher Daniel H. Cohen specializes in argumentation theory, the study of how we use reason (both verbally and in social contexts) to put forth potentially controversial standpoints. Cohen goes beyond just looking at how we plain ol' argue and looks specifically at the metaphors we use for this systematic reasoning. In his work Cohen argues for new, non-combatative metaphors for argument.
Cohen is a Professor of Philosophy at Colby College in Waterville, Maine.
