By presenting and analyzing an early ādāb al-baḥth commentary’s illustrative dialectical sequences, the current study: (1) reveals a set of distinct strategies employed in mulāzama justification; (2) sheds light on a number of additional argument types in regular use; and (3) provides a scripted impression of how a disputation governed by the ādāb al-baḥth would, in practice, have sounded. These general patterns, impressions, and particular argument identifications, together with those of future microstudies, may, it is hoped, inform the analytical foundation for both exploring the ādāb al-baḥth’s argumentative genealogy, and assessing its formative influence in “post-classical” Islamic rational disciplines.
