An argument is a term applied to a usually heated debate between two or more parties. Arguments generally take place in situations where there is rejection of absolute truth, or no "correct" choice of action, and both sides feel strongly about their platform.

In logic and philosophy, an argument is a series of statements typically used to persuade someone of something or to present reasons for accepting a conclusion, sometimes called a proposition.

In legal proceedings, two sides, the prosecution and the defense, each present an argument to persuade the court and/or the jury.
