The dialogical approach to logic is not a specific logical system but rather a rule-based semantic framework in which different logics can be developed, combined and compared. An important point is that there are different kinds of rules fixing meaning. This feature of the underlying semantics of the dialogical approach has often caused it to be called a pragmatist semantics.
