Title: Controversy and Confrontation
Subtitle: Relating controversy analysis with argumentation theory
Edited By: Frans H. van Eemeren
Bart Garssen
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CVS%206
Series Title: Controversies 6
Description:

The essays that are collected in Controversy and Confrontation
provide a closer insight into the relationship between controversy and
confrontation that deepens our understanding of the functioning of
argumentative discourse in managing differences of opinion. Their authors
stem from two backgrounds. First, the controversy scholars Dascal, Marras,
Euli, Regner, Ferreira, and Lessl discuss historical controversies in
science, both from a theoretical and an empirical perspective; Saim
concentrates on a historical controversy; Fritz provides a historical
perspective on controversies by analyzing communication principles. Second
the argumentation scholars Johnson, van Laar, van Eemeren, Garssen and
Meuffels address theoretical or empirical aspects of argumentative
confrontation; Aakhus and Vasilyeva examine argumentative discourse from
the perspective of conversation analysis; Jackson analyzes argumentative
confrontation in a recent debate between scientists and politicians. Last
but not least, two contributors, Kutrovátz and Zemplén, make an attempt to
bridge the study of historical controversy and the study of argumentation.
