Arguing inter-issue in public political arguments

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper is about a particular aspect of the open-ended character of public political arguments. At any point in time in the public sphere, there are countless controversies roaming and issues being addressed. A vigilant political actor crafts her arguments carefully trying to keep under control the contributions these arguments make to the different issues present. In this paper, I explore the challenge of examining the strategic shape and rational quality of such arguments.
