As you can see, this argument could have gone on endlessly. Problems arose
because we ignored the initial cause of the discussion and began instead to
demean each other as terrible people. Our "attack argument" exemplified the way
our culture is obsessed with arguments, regardless of the consequences. The "
argument culture" is clearly portrayed in Deborah Tannen's best selling book, "
The Argument Culture: Stopping America's War of Words." She talks about how
we argue for ...

Difficult words sometimes need to be said, emotions included. With practice —
and with the help of a pro-disagreement ethic — people can get better at it. Those
who remember books from 1998 might ask how this argument connects to that
made by Deborah Tannen in The Argument Culture: Stopping America's War on
Words. Tannen treats arguments and fights as more or less the same thing and
concludes that the United States now features too much of each. This argument

She points out that women tend to emphasize care rather than concern over
whose argument is the most compelling. Frey states “reading and writing are
interactive processes that involve the whole self, so that feelings will influence
thoughts” (p. 516). She further posits that attitudes directly impact the reading and
writing processes. In her most recent book, The Argument Culture: Stopping
America's War of Words, Tannen (1999) delineates differences between the ways
in which ...

of American society. Name- calling and stereotyping go "way back in Western
culture," says Deborah Tannen, professor of linguistics at Georgetown University
and author of the 1999 book The Argument Culture: Stopping America's War of
Words. But, she adds, "I've found lots and lots of evidence that it got worse in the
1990s," as name-calling and shouting replaced more civil debate in realms
ranging ...
