  • Argumentation in Political Deliberationby Marcin Lewinski; Dima Mohammed

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 128.00

    Dialectical approaches traditionally conceptualize argumentation as a discussion in which two parties debate on “two sides of an issue” (pro and con). However, many political issues engender multiple positions. This is clear in multi-party online deliberations in which often an array of competing positions is debated in one and the same... more...

  • Argumentation in Practiceby Frans H. van Eemeren; Peter Houtlosser

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 188.00

    Since the late 1950s the study of argumentation has developed from a marginal part of logic and rhetoric into a genuine interdisciplinary academic discipline. After having first been primarily concerned with creating an adequate philosophical perspective on argumentation, argumentation theorists have gradually shifted their focus of attention to a... more...

  • Aspects of Metaphor in Physicsby Hanna Pulaczewska

    De Gruyter 1999; US$ 140.00

    For decades there has been awareness of the fact that the natural sciences and the language they use are not metaphor-free domains. This study draws together statements on this phenomenon made in a discourse context hitherto dominated by theoreticians and philosophers of science and points up new perspectives of an interdisciplinary nature... more...

  • Coalescent Argumentationby Michael A. Gilbert

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 35.95

    Coalescent Argumentation is based on the concept that arguments can function from agreement, rather than disagreement. To prove this idea, Gilbert first discusses how several components--emotional, visceral (physical) and kisceral (intuitive) are utilized in an argumentative setting by people everyday. These components, also characterized as "modes,"... more...

  • Cognitive Foundations of Linguistic Usage Patternsby Hans-Jörg Schmid; Susanne Handl

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 196.00

    There is an increasing awareness in linguistics that linguistic patterns can be explained with recourse to general cognitive processes. The contributions collected in this volume pursue such a usage-based cognitive linguistic approach by presenting empirical investigations of lexical and grammatical patterns and probing into their implications... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 165.00

    This book represents the state of the art in cognitive stylistics a rapidly expanding field at the interface between linguistics, literary studies and cognitive science. The twelve chapters combine linguistic analysis with insights from cognitive psychology and cognitive linguistics in order to arrive at innovative accounts of a range of literary and... more...

  • Composition As a Human Scienceby Louise Wetherbee Phelps

    Oxford University Press 1991; US$ 29.95

    Although the subject of composition has firmly established itself in secondary schools and universities as one worthy of study, philosophical premises on composition have yet to be discussed. This collection of essays draws together the different philosophical viewpoints on the matter. more...

  • Conducting Socially Responsible Researchby Omar Swartz

    SAGE Publications 1996; US$ 52.00

    This book redefines our understanding of theory, criticism and pedagogy with the vocabulary of neo-pragmatism. When human knowledge becomes historicized and socialized, the distinctions between our public, academic and instructional personae fade. In place of such traditional personae, a new identity is encouraged for scholars in the field of communication.... more...

  • Confronting Metaphor in Useby Mara Sophia Zanotto; Lynne Cameron; Marilda C. Cavalcanti

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 158.00

    It is timely for researchers to approach metaphor as social and situated, as a matter of language and discourse, and not just as a matter of thought. Over the last twenty five years, scholars have come to appreciate in depth the cognitive, motivated and embodied nature of metaphor, but have tended to background the linguistic form of metaphor and have... more...
