RACT2015 brings together international experts from fields as diverse as education, philosophy, speech communication, psychology, mathematics, and rhetoric, among others.  
The main purpose is to assess the state of the art in research on reasoning and argumentation that can play a load-bearing role in the development of cutting-edge critical thinking instruction, both as dedicated courses and across the curriculum.
