Perspectives on Scientific Argumentation: Theory, Practice and Research

Argumentation—arriving at conclusions on a subject via a technique of logical reasoning that comes with debate and persuasion— has in recent times emerged as a relevant subject of debate between technological know-how educators and researchers. there's now a company and basic trust that fostering argumentation in studying actions can advance scholars’ serious considering and reasoning talents, and that dialogic and collaborative inquiries are key precursors to an engagement in clinical argumentation.

The distinction between perceiving and acting reflected in the current chapter is reflective of a larger and converging body of evidence from neurophysiological, neuropsychological and neuroimaging work. After reaching the visual cortex in primates, visual information travels along at least two pathways in the brain. They are called the ventral (or “what”) and dorsal (or “where” or “how”) streams (Goodale & Milner, 1992; Ungerleider & Mishkin, 1982). The ventral stream carries information from the primary visual cortex to the inferotemporal cortex, which subserves visual object recognition, while the dorsal stream carries information from primary visual cortex to the posterior parietal cortex, which subserves spatial perception and the execution of visually-guided movements in 3-D space.

Thus, in this case, the fielder does not have accurate information about where the ball is physically located in space and where it is headed. Our previous work has shown that observers believe that the view of the trajectory from the side and the view from the perspective of a fielder at whom the ball is directed are both roughly parabolic (Shaffer & McBeath, 2005). That is, observers believe that the optical trajectory for someone toward whom the ball is approaching should appear similar to a side view of the physical trajectory.
