CABRAL, Ana Lúcia Tinoco  and  GUARANHA, Manoel Francisco. The Concept of Justice: Argumentation and Dialogism. Bakhtiniana, Rev. Estud. Discurso [online]. 2014, vol.9, n.1, pp.19-34. ISSN 2176-4573.

This paper presents a reflection attempting to situate the concepts of justice and argumentation in Perelman's approach in dialogue with the Bakhtin Circle's theories. For this purpose, it analyses the concept of justice, deals with the concept of argumentation in order to situate its field and to emphasize how it supports the concept of justice, highlights the ethical and dialogical aspects of legal argumentation, establishing connections between Perelman's ideas and dialogic principles of language, and, finally, attempts to show how different voices intersect in the argumentative confrontation through the analysis of two excerpts of legal discourses.

Keywords : Justice; Argumentation; Rhetoric; Dialogism; Ethics.
