The three chapters in Part Two help students apply critical thinking and reading skills to writing analytical, critical, and researched papers.

59 provocative readings (about one third new).

Five in-depth casebooks provide a variety of perspectives on the issues.

Unique section on alternative perspectives on argument. Seven chapters in Part Three introduce students to the following approaches to argument: philosophical (the Toulmin model); logical (deduction, induction, fallacies); ethical; legal; psychological (Rogerian); literary; and forensic (oral argument and debate). ...show less
