Stephen Toulmin (25 March 1922 - 4 December 2009) was an educator, philosopher, and author. A disciple of Ludwig Wittengenstein, he rejected the extremes of absolutism and relativism, arguing that neither has any kind of practical value. Toulmin examined ethics, moral reasoning, and science, and is perhaps best known for his system of argumentation analysis, which he postulated while developing practical argumentation as a response to absolutism and relativism.
