Abstract

This paper discusses the dialectical and rhetorical effects of the use of dissociation in the various stages of a critical discussion which is held to resolve a difference of opinion between disputants. First, the way in which the resolution process evolves as a result of the use of dissociation is delineated; subsequently, the paper examines the way in which dissociation can be used for gaining a position that is the most favourable for promoting the standpoint of the speaker.
