Argumentation in Dispute Books in the Arab Tradition: A Study on Persuasion Strategies (in Arabic).

Auther : Ghazi Alotaibi, Sulaiman Alswaitt

Dispute between ancients and modernists reached its peak when literary critics disagreed over the poetry of Abi Tammam. On the one hand, Abu al-Qasim al-Amadi (371 A.H.) seeks to diminish the value of Abi Tammam's poetry. Instead, he promotes the poetry of Bahtari, seeing as he believes it represents the method used by ancients. On the other hand, Abu Bakr al-Suli (336 A.H.) supports Abu Tammam and his poetry.
The rhetorical and argumentation phenomena that are focused on in regard to the dispute over the two poets are that in al-Amadi’s and al-Suli’s writings, neither have mentioned their preference of one poet over another. In fact, al-Amadi has refused more than once to mention the name of the poet he is referring to in his book.
Seeing that the statement does not always perform the argumentative function with the same strength as some of the persuasive strategies, al-Amadi and al-Suli use a number of these strategies to convince the recipient.
The paper examines the two argumentation texts, Akhbar Abi Tammam and Al-Muwazana. The paper attempts to uncover the clearest argumentative strategies used by the authors in influencing the recipients and convincing them of their point of view.
