Abstract

Authors as well as reviewers can become subject to the charge of ad hominem argumentation, both in the review in question, and in rejoinders to the original review. However, the nature of the ad hominem review is neither precisely defined nor understood. This is especially the case insofar as post-modern sensibilities incline us to see the review as a rhetorical entity as well as a logical one. The principal forms of ad hominem argument are identified, discussed and considered in terms of their logical and rhetorical validity in the review.
