Abstract

The paper aims to bring together and unify two traditions in studying dialogue as a game: dialogical logic introduced by Lorenzen (1978); and persuasion dialogue systems as specified by Prakken (2006). We propose a system which allows the elimination of both informal and formal fallacies (van Eemeren & Grootendorst, 2004). To this end, we reconstruct dialogical logic in terms of speech acts as suggested in (Hodges, 2009).

Speech acts, fallacies and dialogue systems
