Writing arguments: a rhetoric with readings
Allyn and Bacon, 2001 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 759 pages
"The market leader in argumentative rhetoric/readers, Writing Arguments has been praised for its clear explanation of the Toulmin model, separate chapters on reading and writing arguments, and a wealth of interesting student and professional examples. (Regular edition: includes the rhetoric plus an anthology of 58 arguments on contemporary issues.)" Writing Arguments presents four approaches to argument: the enthymeme; Toulmin's system of analyzing arguments; the categories of claims; and the three classical appeals of logos, pathos, and ethos. Focusing on argument as a social act, the book treats argument as a means of clarification and truth-seeking as well as a means of persuading audiences, and shows students the power of inquiry and discovery." For anyone interested in argumentation.
