Title: Dialogue – The Mixed Game
Written By: Edda Weigand
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DS%2010
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 10
Description:

The ‘Mixed Game Model’ represents a holistic theory of dialogue which
starts from human beings’ competence-in-performance and describes how
language is integrated in a general theory of human action and behaviour.
Human beings are able to adapt to changing conditions and to pursue their
interests by the integrated use of various communicative means, mainly
verbal, perceptual and cognitive. The core unit is the dialogic action game
or ‘the mixed game’ with human beings at the centre acting and reacting in
cultural surroundings. The key to opening up the complex whole is human
beings’ nature. The Mixed Game Model demonstrates how the different
disciplines of the natural and social sciences and the humanities are
mutually interconnected. After a detailed overview of the state of the art,
the fundamentals of the theory are laid down. They include a typology of
action games which ranges from minimal games to complex institutional
games. The description is illustrated by analyses of authentic games.
