Description The paper explores so-called quasi-logical arguments in terms of pragma-dialectics as a case of strategic maneuvering. These arguments exploit certain similarity with the mathematical or logical demonstrative character, on closer analysis, however, it is obvious that this similarity is only apparent. The paper is based on the pragma-dialectical reconstruction of probability, particular sub-type of quasi-logical arguments submitted in The New Rhetoric. It is demonstrated that this argument scheme presented in New Rhetoric as one type of scheme is possible to analyze as three different types of strategic maneuvering occurring in different stages of dialogue and using different aspect of strategic maneuvering.
