Argumentation Theory provides a very powerful set of principles, ideas and models. Yet, in this paper we will show that its fundamental principles unsatisfactorily explain real-world human argumentation, and should be adapted. We will present an extensive empirical study on the incompatibility of abstract argumentation and human argumentative behavior, followed by practical expansion of existing models.
