Description

This highly regarded textbook explores the skills-clear thinking, critical listening, and careful analysis-that are vital to rational, democratic discourse, and that today's citizens and professionals need to make and evaluate arguments in real-life contexts.

Drawing on classical and contemporary theory, it explores the structure of arguments; the criteria of evidence, validity, and linguistic clarity; common types of arguments and fallacies; and issues in adapting arguments to audiences. Abundant examples and exercises illustrate principles in terms of students' personal, professional, and civic lives.

The new edition is updated to reflect current theory and public concerns, including issues that arise with rapidly expanding internet resources and digital media.
