Combining normative reflection with computational methods and empirical research, DebateLab brings together scholars who

  • study normative models of reasoning and argumentation;
  • carry out logical analyses of policy debates and scientific controversies;
  • develop methods and tools to improve the argumentative quality of public reasoning.  

DebateLab is hosted at KIT's Department of Philosophy / ITZ (working group political philosophy and argumentation theory) and ITAS.
