Title: Diskurshandlungen [Discourse Acts]
Subtitle: Theorie und Methode linguistischer Diskursanalyse am Beispiel der Bioethikdebatte
Written By: Constanze Spieß
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?isbn=9783110258806&sel=pi
Series Title: De Gruyter Sprache und Wissen 7
Description:

This work examines discourse analysis in terms of its theory and methodology
and their empirical implementation. The linguistics of discourse is seen as being
based in action theory. A multilevel discourse analysis model is developed as
methodology. With reference to the example of the bioethical discourse
surrounding stem cell research, the author shows how keywords, metaphors and
the topoi of argumentation are positioned and semantically fixed in the context
of ideological argumentation and how this leads to a perspectivized construct of
reality.
