Proposals for logic-based argumentation have the potential to be adapted for handling diverse kinds of knowledge. In this paper, a calculus for representing temporal knowledge is proposed, and defined in terms of propositional logic. This calculus is then considered with respect to argumentation, where an argument is pair 〈Φ,α〉 such that Φ a minimally consistent subset of a database entailing α. Two alternative definitions of an argument are considered and contrasted.
