Open resources for argument visualization

Argument visualizations display the logic of arguments. They help organize and navigate complex information. They encourage clearly articulated reasoning. And they promote quick and effective communication. Here, you can find materials to help learn this technique. Having laid bare the moving parts of complex arguments, you will be better equipped to discuss them and figure out your own views.

This site builds on resources created for the Princeton freshman seminar, "Philosophical Analysis Using Argument Maps," taught by Simon Cullen, Adam Elga, and Shamik Dasgupta, including: a short introduction to the Basics of argument visualization, Hints for more advanced students, open-source web-based Software for collaborative argument visualization, and resources for Teachers.
