A Brief Rhetoric
Praxis takes the rich history of rhetoric and applies it to everyday writing situations students encounter in the university, work, home, and beyond. It informs students of the language of historical rhetoric, including terms such as kairos, ethos, pathos, and logos. Then, it applies this useful vocabulary to modern day issues such as airline travelers being stranded on runways, the rights of smokers and non-smokers, and global warming.
Praxis is written for instructors who have essentially the same practical goals as Aristotle and other Rhetors who taught in ancient Greece—to help their students improve their composition skills and by doing so, increase confidence in their ability to handle any occasion for writing.
Praxis moves the student from theory to practical reason to action!
Praxis – to specify practical reasoning, for which the goal is action.
