Set 1 - Argument parts

In this set you will be introduced to the key building blocks of arguments: positions, reasons, objections and rebuttals. You'll learn how to map these on a what in Rationale is called a "Reasoning" map. Rationale also has a more advanced argument mapping mode ("Advanced Reasoning") which we will use later once we have learnt the basics.
