26 E. Rigotti and S. Greco Morasso As for the first case, imagine that Mr. Johnson enters a pub and, without taking his hat off, drinks five pints of beer and gets drunk: nobody would seriously conclude that we should never drink beer without taking our hat off! ” In this case, a general rule “companies producing cigarettes should not earn too much” is applied to a specific situation where, actually, other specific reasons would more appropriately support the claim. ” Can this general rule be reasonably applied even if it only concerns a particular category of workers (primary school teachers) asking for a rise in salary?

For example, when scientific discourse is the content of didactical activities, it immediately takes on aspects that are typical of argumentation, as we have seen. First of all, didactical language, as such, has to create a mediation between the specific language of the subject and the ordinary one, but above all it has to consider the addressee’s knowledge and interests and respect his/her freedom and reason – all of which is typically argumentative. Also a mathematical proof, as the one we have quoted, has its own argumentative dimension… moreover, such a dimension would become more evident if we considered the formulation of the geometric proof in the ancient tradition, where there has been a clear perception of a precise argumentative interaction (a real dialogue) between teacher and disciple.

The roles that are thus generated are “embodied” by implementing subjects that can be individual or collective. In relation to implementing subjects, the relevance of another component of context arises: the interpersonal dimension. This second component has actually to do with the human factor of context.
