In this paper we propose an agent communication approach based on social commitments and arguments. In this approach, agents must use their reasoning capabilities to reason about their mental states before acting on commitments or on their contents in a relevant way. In order to enable them to choose the most relevant arguments at each step of the dialogic interaction, this approach allows the agents to use two types of reasoning: strategic and tactical. The strategic reasoning allows an agent to choose its global communication plan in terms and to select the constraints which it decides to satisfy. In addition, tactical reasoning allows agents to locally choose, at each turn, the most relevant argument according to the adopted strategy.
