Example text

Here again, the difference does not lie in the rationality of the move, but rather in the reasonable comprehension of the context. 18 For instance, a scientific discussion aiming at resolving a certain mathematical problem excludes the use of threats; however, the use of threats is perfectly admissible and actually used as a rhetorical instrument, for instance, in processes of international negotiation. In a second sense, the adherence to actual circumstances also includes a precise and comprehensive “feeling” of the context where the argumentative intervention takes place.

Two fundamental notions are focused on by this definition: standpoint and locus. A standpoint is a statement (simple or complex) for whose acceptance by the addressee the arguer intends to argue. Two aspects of the standpoint are particularly relevant in the AMT’s perspective. Firstly, a standpoint is a particular type of statement which (1) has not yet received a shared justification (neither by evidence nor by a previous inference); (2) is bound to a commitment of immediate justification by an inferential procedure (it is destined to figure as a conclusion).

E. critical – discussion. In the confrontation stage of a critical discussion, the difference of opinion emerges: “it becomes clear that there is a standpoint that is not accepted because it runs up against doubt or contradiction” (van Eemeren and Grootendorst 2004, p. 60). In other words, the protagonist puts forward a standpoint, and the antagonist reacts to it either by casting doubt on it (giving rise, thus, to a non-mixed dispute), or by presenting an alternative standpoint (from which a mixed dispute originates).
