54, Argumentation Based on Classical Logic

Really well written paper ('Argumentation Based on Classical Logic', 2009, Philippe Besnard, Anthony Hunter). Loads of examples throughout. I like the concept of an argument being 'more conservative' than another (i.e. it is "less demanding on the support and less specific about the consequent") and that of a 'maximally conservative undercut'. The argument trees considered are "merely a representation of the argumentation" and (differently to 'abstract argument systems') do not display cases where the argumentation is infinite and unresolved as being so.
