>>Subject: Argumentation Mapping Update 2001.2
>>Published by MacroVU Press in support of the Visual Language Project at
>>Stanford University, which is directed by Robert E. Horn, author of
>>Visual Language: Global Communication for the 21st Century.
>>The UPDATE summarizes the research and applications of argumentation
>>In this issue:
>>1. Welcome to "The UPDATE"
>>2. Newest Innovation -- Multiple Levels of Detail on the Web
>>3. The Topic Of This Innovation -- Part of the Consciousness Map
>>4. Request For Feedback --Are Argumentation Maps Better on the Web?
>>5. Vital Navigational Infrastructure
>>6. Art and Science Combined
>>7. Other Links on our Project's Work
>>1. WELCOME TO "The UPDATE"
>>A recent full-page review in the journal "Nature", "New Scientist"
>>(<http://www.newscientist.com/ns/19990710/beyond.html>) and in the
>>"Philosophers' Magazine" (Summer,
>>1999)(<http://www.philosophers.co.uk/current/mapping.htm>) have focused
>>attention on our project. We've been asked a lot of questions about the
>>field, so we've launched this newsletter. This is our second one.
>>Our goal is to keep you up-to-date on the field of argumentation mapping.
>>We will summarize the projects we're working on, both research and
>>applications. We'll review important books and articles in the field and
>>present brief critiques of important issues in the field. --Bob Horn,
>>2. NEWEST INNOVATION -- MULTIPLE LEVELS OF DETAIL ON THE WEB
>>The most recent innovation in our Mapping Great Debates Series is a
>>detailed portion of one of our argumentation maps on our publisher's web
>>site. We have also provided a second level "beneath" the summaries of
>>the claims on our map. This second level contains quotes from the
>>protagonists' original articles, on which our summaries are based. This
>>begins to provide the depth that hypertext on the web offers.
>>3. THE TOPIC OF THIS INNOVATION -- PART OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS MAP
>>The web portion is from map 6--"Do Computers Have to Be Conscious to
>>Think?" If you look at the maps on the web, you will see two regions of
>>the map outlined in heavy red lines. These are:
>>(1) the debates about "Can Computers be Conscious?" and
>>(2) the functionalism debates "Can Functional States Generate
>>Clicking there will enable you to view a total of 31 major "moves" in the
>>argument -- claims, rebuttals and counterrebuttals. They are presented
>>in detail both in map form and in individual in-depth "source" pages that

>>4. REQUEST FOR FEEDBACK -- ARE ARGUMENTATION MAPS BETTER ON THE WEB?
>>Many students, teachers, and researchers have commented on the large size
>>of the maps (They are 3 x 4 feet in size) and have suggested to us that
>>our whole enterprise might be better on the web. So we decided to try
>>the experiment first announced in this newsletter. Others have already
>>noted that the web versions do not provide the ease of seeing the overall
>>structure of the arguments provided by the paper versions. We'd like
>>your ideas and feedback on this experiment.

>>5. VITAL NAVIGATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE
>>Our own view is that this form of argumentation maps on the web provide
>>an important navigational infrastructure for understanding the emergence
>>of a philosophical subject matter and its intellectual
>>history. With our website you can begin to envision how the depth of
>>the unfolding of debates on the cutting edges of different disciplines
>>and interdisciplinary issues can be summarized and mapped.
>>IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON THIS PROJECT, SEND US AN EMAIL
>>5. NEXT -- LINK TO FULL TEXT SOURCES
>>The obvious next step in this enterprise is to have the individual claims
>>linked to not only the quote pages that we have provided, but also to the
>>full text of the original sources. You can view an example of this by
>>clicking on the Turing claim on Map 6. The link will take you to the
>>full text of Alan Turing's 1950 article in "Mind" which is on the web at
>>the Dartmouth College Philosophy Department site. We are seeking funds
>>to enable us to do the full linking of maps-to-full text on the web for
>>our mapping project.
>>6. ART AND SCIENCE COMBINED
>>We were especially delighted that during the course of one year our
>>Mapping Great Debates Series received both a full page review in one of
>>the top science magazines in the world, Nature, and was also hung as part
>>of a fine arts exhibit in the Hague at the Stoom Center for the Visual
