Advocacy and Opposition: An Introduction toArgumentation presents a comprehensive and practical approach to argumentation and critical thinking for the beginner who needs to construct and present arguments on questions of fact, value, and policy.

Advocacy and Opposition offers a theoretical view of the nature of argument in our society, a discussion of arguing as a form of communication, and a focus on how arguments are created using the Toulmin model of argument.

Advocacy and Opposition offers a theoretical insight into the nature of argument in our society, a discussion of arguing as a form of communication, and a focus on how arguments are created using the Toulmin model of argument. By blending traditional and contemporary views on the nature of argument (including multicultural perspectives on the purpose and process of argument, ethics, and values), Advocacy and Opposition makes students more aware of the development of theory and practice.

 

Features:

  • Presents separate discussions of the techniques and strategies of fact, value, and policy arguments to equip students with the writing and speaking tools they need to succeed in their college courses.
  • Includes an in-depth discussion of the different types of reasoning to enable students to critically examine the thinking behind arguments they make as well as those they read and hear.
  • Employs the Toulmin model of argument to explain how the parts of an argument fit together to help students construct their own arguments and think critically about the arguments of others (Chapter 5).

New to This Edition:

  • Phrasing propositions and defining terms section streamlines the process of phrasing and defining; includes a discussion of problems created by relying exclusively on standard dictionaries as well as the value of using specialized dictionaries (Chapter 3).
  • Reasoning techniques section includes new examples and discussion of reasoning from sign, parallel case, and analogy, to enhance student’s interest and understanding of the material (Chapter 7).
  • Fallacies in argumentation section features brand new examples and a revised discussion of the various types of fallacies (Chapter 8).
  • Learning Activities have been added to the end of each chapter.
