At a medical consultation it is the doctor’s task to diagnose the patient’s health problem, to provide the patient with a prognosis of this problem and/or to advise him about which treatment to undergo. Roosmaryn Pilgram investigates the conditions under which a doctor’s argument by authority may constitute a reasonable and effective strategic manoeuvre in medical consultation. She does this by applying a pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation.
