[en] In this paper we show that some versions of Dung’s abstract
argumentation frames are equivalent to classical propositional logic. In
fact, Dung’s attack relation is none other than the generalised Peirce–
Quine dagger connective of classical logic which can generate the other
connectives ¬,∧,∨,→ of classical logic. After establishing the above correspondence we offer variations of the Dung argumentation frames in parallel to variations of classical logic, such as resource logics, predicate logic, etc., etc., and create resource argumentation frames, predicate argumentation frames, etc., etc. We also offer the notion of logic proof as a
geometrical walk along the nodes of a Dung network and thus we are
able to offer a geometrical abstraction of the notion of inference based
argumentation. Thus our paper is also a contribution to the question:
“What is a logical system”
in as much as it integrates logic with abstract argumentation networks
