VILARO, Ignacio. A Pragmatic Definition of the Begging the Question Fallacy. arete [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.1, pp. 107-130. ISSN 1016-913X.
A pragmatic definition of the Begging the question fallacy is presented in this paper. In the first part of it I consider and reject Frank Jacksons suggestion according to which argumentation possesses a different end than rationally persuading an audience that something is the case. The definition is presented in part II. Part III refers briefly to the representation of arguments through graphs. Finally, in part IV, the proposed definition is applied to some argument examples.
