In Deliberate Conflict Roberts Miller examines a variety of political theories liberal technocratic communitarian agonistic as well as the models of the public sphere associated with those theories She specifically connects those various theories with different approaches to the teaching of college composition She points out for example that expressivist pedagogy is in many ways dependent on a liberal model privileging an irenic model of discourse that aims at consensus 12 She associates communitarian approaches to argument on the other hand with social constructivist pedagogies positing the latter as both significantly flawed given antifoundational theories’ potential to dead end in political uietism 170 and the best of the predominant options the others being current traditionalism and expressivism at the time of the book’s publication in 2004 172 Roberts Miller instead posits an agonistic approach that draws heavily on the later work of Habermas and reuires deliberators to both listen carefully to parties with whom they disagree not for the purposes of irenic expression however but for the purposes of informed argumentation aimed at continuing deliberation rather than synthesizing consensus In this model argument is a constitutive part of political discourse rather than an aberration to be avoided or minimized For Roberts Miller this connects back to many composition instructors’ resistance to teaching public argument She argues that this resistance is due to the broader political assumptions instructors operate under For instance an instructor who holds even implicitly to a liberal theory of politics and discourse might see irenic expression as desirable and appropriate than agonistic argument seeing the latter as bound up in an unsavory interest based approach to politics and discourse 223In the end Roberts Miller is careful not to ask her readers and fellow teachers to agree uneuivocally with her arguments but to enter into arguments about argument and its role in composition classrooms hoping that “identifying the disagreements regarding the public sphere will help instructors understand that they can reject specific models of public argument without rejecting argument altogether” 227

I had read parts of this book before but I decided to teach the whole book for my graduate seminar in teaching argument It was interesting to go through it with the lens of trying to figure out how much the students will understand Roberts Miller demonstrates the breadth of her knowledge throughout the book There were times she did not explain her references as well as she could have for a group of graduate students who do not have much exposure to political theory or the history of rhetoric I think her terminology may have confused some students as the distinctions she was making were not obvious Yet I kept thinking as I read through just how much students needed to read this book Her perspective is not one that we expose students to in practicum or elsewhere Students have not theorized argument nor have they contextualized it in western philosophy I know most of my students will not get everything she is trying to say However they will take away enough I think Deliberate Conflict will impact themI spotted some redundancies that I didn't stumble across before and I disagreed with her on some points She refused to talk about research especially the impact of propaganda on argument I would have liked to have seen about the influence of capitalism on democracy as that has been theorized and the concomitant influence on argument Otherwise I really enjoyed this book It's a must read for anyone who teaches composition
