Title: Dialogue and Rhetoric
Edited By: Edda Weigand
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DS%202
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 2
Description:

The volume deals with the relationship between dialogue and rhetoric. The
actual state of the art in dialogue analysis is characterized by a tendency
to overcome the distinction between competence and performance and to
combine components from both sides of the dichotomy, in a way which
includes rules as well as inferences. The same is true of rhetoric: the
guidelines proposed here no longer state that rationality and persuasion
are mutually exclusive but suggest that they interact in what might be
called the ‘mixed game’. The concept of a dialogic rhetoric thus poses the
question of how to integrate the different voices. Part I of the volume
assembles several ‘rhetorical paradigms’ which are applied to real-life
performance. Part II on ‘rhetoric in the mixed game’ contains a selection
of papers which illustrate the interaction of various components. The Round
Table discussion in Part III brings proponents of different paradigms face
to face with each other and shows how they justify their own positions and
present arguments against rival paradigms.
