Abstract:

> Systematic treatment of the uses of dissociation
> Wealth of examples, selected from different cultures and types of situation
> Exploration of both dialectical and rhetorical dimensions of dissociation
> Embedded in a clear and well-used theoretical framework
> Includes case study illustrating the practical significance of the approach

Dissociation is a pervasive argumentative technique that can be found in
argumentative discussions from all realms of public and private life. Up
till now, a comprehensive and systematic argumentation theoretical study of
dissociation does not exist. This book aims to fill this gap. 

The treatment in this book, in several respects, is innovative. To begin
with, so far, dissociation has been studied mainly from a monologual
orientation. This book specifically focuses on dialogual aspects of the use
of dissociation in argumentative discussions. In the second place, extant
studies deal primarily with examples of dissociation from the philosophical
and literary spheres or from the political arena. This book discusses a
great variety of examples, many from every-day contexts, from such sources
as newspapers, television shows, websites, Parliamentary Reports, and
ordinary conversations. Last, but not least, the present book examines a
broad range of features of dissociation. The first part of the book
clarifies the notion of dissociation and provides insight into the way in
which dissociation becomes manifest in argumentative discourse. The second
part of the book, using the theoretical perspective of Pragma-Dialectics,
answers the question how dissociation is used by the participants in
argumentative discussions to realize their dialectical and rhetorical aims.
The third and last part of the book discusses the strengths and weaknesses
of the use of dissociation in argumentative discussions, both with regard
to its dialectical soundness and to its persuasive effectiveness.
