Sammanfattning (abstract):
Braiding organization theory and argumentation theory, I unfold in this article how argumentation contributes to organizational sense-making and how organizations act as social loci for the production, diffusion and development of arguments. A Swedish association dedicated to the defense and promotion of nuclear power, Miljövänner För Kärnkraft (approximately Environmentalists For Nuclear Power) serves as a case study. I describe the associationâ??s argumentative activity with a particular focus on its argument that â??nuclear power is environment friendly as it produces no greenhouse gases emissionsâ?. The manner in which the association contextualizes this key argument illustrates the inter-relationships there exist between organizing and arguing. The two are each otherâ??s conditions of possibility and I therefore argue for a symmetric understanding of the argumentative character of organizing and the organized character of argumentation.
