is an argument analysis and mapping platform.

How it works

Users assert contentions to be discussed, supported, proved, or disproved, and argue with premises using because, but, or however conjunctions.



Critical thinking is the intellectually-disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication as a guide to belief and action. In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.

Basis of critical thinking is arguments. Assessment is done over argument, argument premises, promotives, and corruptives.

You can think of argument mappings as visual hierarchy mappings.’s aim is to map arguments successfully through the efforts of many users.

Who are we is an open source project which is developed by the community. If you want to contribute technically or intellectually please don’t hesitate.
