Summary: Drawn from extensive classroom experience, Argument and Argumentation brings a unique approach to critical thinking though emphasis on communication theory or rhetoric. The emphasis on teaching Modes (ethos, pathos, logos), demonstrates to the student the dynamic nature of arguments and allows them to identify and create strong arguments. Each text is accompanied by a complimentary exercise book, making Argument and Argumentation one of the most exercise-rich critica morel-thinking texts. This is a true pedagogical package.


--Argumentation: Includes conceptual analysis and issue analysis, which takes the student beyond traditional thinking to developing their own arguments and engaging in broader aspects of critical thinking.
--Written Argumentation: Virtually all critical thinking texts focus on the analysis and assessment of argument. Virtually none focus on the development of student analysis and arguments.
--Fallacies: The fallacies section introduces new material, including models for analysis of fallacies, look-alikes and when is an argument not a fallacy. This text also places a strong emphasis on the context for the interpretation of fallacies.
--Issues Analysis: Includes issue analysis which sets argument analysis and critique within a broader context that moves the student beyond the simple argument analysis and helps them develop their own reasoning on a topic.
--Canadian Examples: One of the few texts that use extensive Canadian examples, drawing on issues likely to generate active response from students.
--Modular Format: The text uses a module format so that instructors can use it in a variety of ways, for a variety of audiences and classes. Some of the modules and parts of the modules can be used independently of one another so that instructors can use those modules in different orders to meet their own particular teaching needs.
--Student Study Manual: The study guide is a free bundle item. Filled with additional exercises, the student study guide is designed to reinforce concepts addressed in the text. less
