Since 2005, and after an initial stage as a formal logician, he centers on the theories of argumentation, where these theories could be defined as the study of argumentative practices.   Traditionally, there is a distinction between the logical perspective that focuses on the arguments, the rhetorical perspective that studies argumentative processes, and the dialectical perspective that attends the argumentative procedures Due to this division, I would say that my approach to argumentation is predominantly logical, and that I therefore devote myself to the theory of arguments.
