Extended Dialectical Sequences

  • Walter Edward Young
Chapter
Part of the Logic, Argumentation & Reasoning book series (LARI, volume 9)

Abstract

This chapter opens the monograph’s analytical core, with detailed analyses for the twelve extended Q&A disputation sequences found in the Kitāb Ikhtilāf al-ʿIrāqiyyayn / ʿIrāqiyyīn. After some brief notes on translation and analytical method (Sect. 5.1), these sequences—on a diverse range of early Islamic legal topics—are presented as “masā’il-sets” (Sect. 5.2). They appear in parallel translation, and are followed by detailed, play-by-play analyses revealing a rich variety of juridical dialectical features.

Keywords

masā’il-sets with extended dialectical sequences “instructional” or “historical” dialectical sequence hypothetical qiyās method-naqḍ al-Shāfiʿī’s dialectical style and strategies
