Description : In this volume, emphasis is placed on contributions to the study of argumentation by scholars from communication, speech communication, rhetoric, and discourse analysis. So far, their work has been insufficiently represented in anthologies, overviews and readers. William Benoit, Dale Hample, and Pamela Benoit have made efforts to correct the imbalance by filling in the gap. In our opinion, they have succeeded in compounding an excellent selection of classical highlights from modern literature in the field. For scholars, the books provides a rich source of information and references. -- Pref. (p. [xi]-xii).

Description : "Everyday Arguments" combines brief argument rhetoric with an anthology of illustrative readings drawn from arguments of everyday life. The anthology of readings is closely tied to the principles and practices introduced in the rhetoric section. The overarching philosophy of the reading selections (and of the book as a whole) is that written argument -- in all its variety -- is the most common form of writing and that much can be learned about its practice from the texts we encounter on a daily basis. Ideal for individuals interested in learning to develop argumentative and persuasive writing skills.

Description : This book addresses two related questions that have first arisen in Toulmin’s seminal book on the uses of argument. The first question is the one of the relationship between the semantic analysis of modality and the structure of arguments. The second question is the one of the distinctive place, or role, of modality in the fundamental structure of arguments. These two questions concern how modality, as a semantic category, relates to the fundamental structure of arguments. The book addresses modality and argumentation also according to another perspective by looking at how different linguistic modal expressions may be taken as argumentative indicators. It explores the role of modal expressions as argumentative indicators by using the Italian modal system as a case study. At the same time, it uses predictions/forecasts in the business-financial daily press to investigate the relation between modality and the context of argumentation.

Description : This volume presents a selection of papers reflecting key theoretical issues in argumentation theory. Its six sections are devoted to specific themes, including the analysis and evaluation of argumentation, argument schemes and the contextual embedding of argumentation. The section on general perspectives on argumentation discusses the trends of empiricalization, contextualization and formalization, offers descriptions of the analytical and evaluative tools of informal logic, and highlights selected principles that argumentation theorists do and do not agree upon. In turn, the section on linguistic approaches to argumentation focuses on the problem of distinguishing between explanation and argument, while also elaborating on the role of verbal indicators of argument schemes. All essays included in this volume point out notable recent developments in the study of argumentation.

Description : A refreshing approach to composition, Argument Today prepares students to communicate persuasively and collaboratively in academic, career, and other real life settings. This new text equips students to create effective academic papers as well as persuasive compositions in many genres and media relevant in and beyond higher education. Such breadth of applicability is further effected by presenting argument also as a generative form of communication-an ongoing conversation employed by teams or groups of people to share information, formulate new ideas, modify plans, negotiate agreements, and build consensus. Systematically explored throughout, this expanded perspective opens students to the immediate relevance of argument to their multi-faceted lives.

Description : For courses in Argument and Research. This version of Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, Brief has been updated the reflect the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016) * Teach students to read arguments critically and to produce effective arguments Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, Brief Edition, Tenth Edition integrates four different approaches to argument: the enthymeme as a logical structure, the classical concepts of logos, pathos, and ethos, the Toulmin system, and stasis theory. Focusing on argument as dialogue in search of solutions instead of a pro-con debate with winners and losers, it is consistently praised for teaching the critical thinking skills needed for writing arguments. Major assignment chapters each focus on one or two classical stases (e.g. definition, resemblance, causal, evaluation, and policy). Each concept is immediately reinforced with discussion prompts, and each chapter ends with multiple comprehensive writing assignments. This brief version contains exemplary readings within the chapters but excludes the anthology included in the comprehensive version. Also available in a Comprehensive version (032190673X) and a Concise version (0321964284) which is a redaction of the Brief edition. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the increasing mobility of texts, MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following. "

Description : Understanding Rhetoric: A Guide to Critical Reading and Argumentation is a composition textbook that outlines three essential skills – rhetoric, argument, and source-based writing – geared towards newcomers and advanced students alike. Though comprehensive in its coverage, the book’s focus is a simple one: how to move beyond a "gut reaction" while reading to an articulation of what is effective and what is not, while explicitly answering the most important question of "Why?" This text gets at this central concern in two fundamental ways. First, the text teaches composition as a cumulative process, coaching you how to question, challenge, and expand on not just the readings you hold in your hands, but also how to interrogate the internal processes of writing and thinking. The book's blend of composition methods detail the cross-point of product and process to turn reading and writing from a matter of coming up with answers to questions to learning what type of questions need to be asked in the first place. The "right" questions, the text argues, are fundamentally rhetorical in nature. Second, the content of the practice-based chapters is framed into a larger mesh of intellectual history to show how the writing and thinking you are doing today is continuous with a long history of writing instruction that goes back to the ancient world. This book provides equal representation from classical and contemporary theory with the recognition that theory cannot be fully grasped without practice, and practice cannot be fully understood without its theoretical antecedent. After all, you can’t write "outside the box" until you know where the box is and what it looks like.

Description : More than any other contemporary moral problems reader, Contemporary Moral Arguments focuses on the key arguments that have provoked the most debate in recent ethical issues. The book opens with two introductory chapters on critical reasoning and moral theory, which provide the basis forunderstanding and analyzing the arguments in the subsequent issues chapters (chs. 3-12). In the conventional way, these readings on ethical issues are sorted into 10 topical chapters covering issues such as abortion, sex and marriage, terrorism and torture, economic justice, etc. But the readingswithin these chapters are organized unconventionally, by argument. Each argument is introduced by a briefing that sketches the argument, provides conceptual background for it, and reviews some of the main philosophical responses to it. After the briefing come two to four essays presenting theclassic statement of the argument, critiques and defenses of it, and discussions of related debates.A wide array of pedagogical features enhances understanding:* Essay questions following each of the 28 argument sections, ideal for writing assignments* Four types of boxes throughout:* "Facts and Figures" - statistics on the social, historical and scientific aspects of the chapter's topic* "Public Opinion" - recent opinion polls tracking people's views on moral issues* "Legalities" - summaries of important court rulings and other legal matters* "Time Line" - important events relating to the topic* List of key terms at the end of each chapter, all defined in the glossary* Suggestions for further reading

Description : Argumentation is often understood as a coherent set of Western theories, birthed in Athens and developing throughout the Roman period, the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment and Renaissance, and into the present century. Ideas have been nuanced, developed, and revised, but still the outline of argumentation theory has been recognizable for centuries, or so it has seemed to Western scholars. The 2019 Alta Conference on Argumentation (co-sponsored by the National Communication Association and the American Forensic Association) aimed to question the generality of these intellectual traditions. This resulting collection of essays deals with the possibility of having local theories of argument - local to a particular time, a particular kind of issue, a particular place, or a particular culture. Many of the papers argue for reconsidering basic ideas about arguing to represent the uniqueness of some moment or location of discourse. Other scholars are more comfortable with the Western traditions, and find them congenial to the analysis of arguments that originate in discernibly distinct circumstances. The papers represent different methodologies, cover the experiences of different nations at different times, examine varying sorts of argumentative events (speeches, court decisions, food choices, and sound), explore particular personal identities and the issues highlighted by them, and have different overall orientations to doing argumentation scholarship. Considered together, the essays do not generate one simple conclusion, but they stimulate reflection about the particularity or generality of the experience of arguing, and therefore the scope of our theories.

Description : This highly regarded English Composition text teaches students to read argument and provides material around which they can write their own argumentative essays. Throughout the collection, short and compelling pieces generate classroom debate by touching on today's most controversial issues, including stem cell research and racial profiling. The brevity of each argument allows instructors to assign one or more readings in a single class period. While the majority of reading selections function as models of good writing, the collection also contains poorly structured writing examples so that students can analyze and learn from the flaws. The Twelfth Edition features "Get Your Facts," a new section designed to help students use the latest technology and document electronic resources properly.
