Title: Dialectic and Rhetoric
Subtitle: The Warp and Woof of Argumentation Analysis
Edited By: Peter Houtlosser
Frans H. van Eemeren
URL: http://www.wkap.nl/book.htm/1-4020-0703
Series Title: ARGUMENTATION LIBRARY Volume: 6
Description:

This volume discusses two distinct perspectives on the analysis of argumentative discourse: the dialectical and the rhetorical perspective. Both theoretical approaches have a long and eminent history, which is also complex. After their first development in
Antiquity, remarkable changes have taken place in the way in which dialectic and rhetoric, and their relationship, have been viewed. This volume intends to open a thorough discussion of the two approaches, their commonalities and differences, and the ways in which, in some combination or other, they can be used to further the development of sound analytic tools for dealing with argumentation.


Dialectic and Rhetoric: The Warp and Woof of Argumentation Analysis contains essays by prominent scholars in dialetic and rhetoric:
J.A.E. Bons, Frans H. van Eemeren, Jean Goodwin, Hanns Hohmann, Peter
Houtlosser, Scott Jacobs, Erik C.W. Krabbe, Fred J. Kauffeld, Michael
Leff, and Edward Schlappa. All authors explain certain views on the role that dialetic and rhetoric can play, alone or in combination, in conceptualizing and analyzing argumentative discourse. The collection of essays as a whole is meant to be an inspiration to all those interested in improving the quality of the analysis of argumentative discourse.
