Summary

Arguing Across the Disciplines is the only text of its kind, combining instruction in argumentation with writing across the curriculum and including a diverse selection of classic and contemporary arguments in a wide range of disciplines.

Nine writing chapters provide students with a comprehensive discussion of argument that includes stasis theory (claim types), classical appeals, the Toulmin model, Rogerian argument, inductive and deductive reasoning, and refutation. In addition, Arguing Across the Disciplinesoffers extensive discussion of visual arguments, how arguments are constructed in different disciplines for different audiences and purposes, and source-based writing using MLA, APA, and CSE documentation styles.

At the same time, Arguing Across the Disciplines encourages the comprehension and practice of essential skills emphasized in WAC programs, including summary, analysis, and synthesis.

The anthology features thought-provoking arguments organized by broad curricular areas (the Liberal Arts, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences) that include disciplines such as architecture, bioethics, communication, economics, engineering, epidemiology, and literature--ideal for first year students still choosing their field(s) of study.
