Title: Examining Argumentation in Context
Subtitle: Fifteen studies on strategic maneuvering

Series Title: Argumentation in Context 1
Description:

Examining Argumentation in Context: Fifteen studies on strategic
maneuvering
contains a selection of papers on strategic maneuvering in
argumentative discourse. Starting point of all of these contributions is
that a satisfactory analysis and evaluation of strategic maneuvering is
possible only if the argumentative discourse is first situated in the
communicative and interactional context in which it occurs. While some of
the contributions present general views with regard to strategic
maneuvering, other contributions report on the results of empirical
studies, examine strategic maneuvering in a particular legal or political
context, or highlight the presentational design of strategic maneuvering.
Examining Argumentation in Context therefore provides an
insightful view of recent developments in the research on strategic
maneuvering, which is currently prominent in the study of argumentation.
