The process of proof is one of inference to the best explanation, in which alternative scenarios are supported and attacked by arguments. This combination of scenarios and arguments was previously presented as a formal hybrid theory. In this paper, the aim is to further integrate scenarios and arguments by defining a notion of attack between alternative explanations. Thus, scenarios and arguments can be incorporated in the same dialectical framework.
