<>For courses in Argument and Research.
The most thorough theoretical foundation available
Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, Brief Edition, 10/e 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 includes readings within the chapters but excludes the anthology included in the comprehensive version.
Also available in a Comprehensive version (032190673X) and a Concise version which is a redaction of the Brief edition ( 0321964284).
