Description:

Keeping in touch with Pragma-Dialectics is written to honor
Frans van Eemeren and his work in the field of argumentation theory on
the occasion of his retirement. The volume contains 17 contributions
from teams of authors consisting of a combination of a pragma-
dialectician and one or two researchers with a different background in
the field of argumentation. In this volume, comparisons between the
pragma-dialectical approach and other approaches are made, aspects of
strategic maneuvering such as the use of presentational techniques,
adaptation to the audience and the selection of topics are dealt with and
the influence of specific institutional contexts such as politics, medicine
and internet forums on strategic maneuvering are discussed.
