Title: Strategic Maneuvering in Argumentative Discourse
Subtitle: Extending the pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation
Written By: Frans H. van Eemeren
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AIC%202
Series Title: Argumentation in Context 2
Description:

In Strategic Maneuvering in Argumentative Discourse, Frans H. van
Eemeren brings together the dialectical and the rhetorical
dimensions of argumentation by introducing the concept of strategic
maneuvering. Strategic maneuvering refers to the arguer’s continual efforts
to reconcile aiming for effectiveness with being reasonable. It takes place
in all stages of argumentative discourse and manifests itself
simultaneously in the choices that are made from the topical potential
available at a particular stage, in adaptation to audience demand, and in
the use of specific presentational devices. Strategic maneuvering derails
when in the specific context in which the discourse takes place a rule for
critical discussion has been violated, so that a fallacy has been
committed. Van Eemeren makes clear that extending the pragma-dialectical
approach to argumentation by taking account of strategic maneuvering leads
to a richer and more precise method for analyzing and evaluating
argumentative discourse.
