Coordination games and disagreement
This essay explores the suitability of coordination games for the study of strategic argumentation in disagreements. An argumentative battle of the sexes (ArgBoS) game is introduced for studying various strategies of rational disagreement resolution. The properties of both normal- and extensive-form ArgBoS are explored. In addition, the strategic effects of burning money will be studied. It will be shown that burning money can have strategic advantages in resolving disagreements.
Keywords: argumentative battle of the sexes, argumentation frameworks, argumentation theory, coordination game, disagreement, dialogue game, game theory
