Argument through problem solving
Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings has sustained its reputation as a leader in argumentation through 10 editions, and that’s no coincidence. Authors Ramage, Bean, and Johnson present argument as a process of inquiry and a means of persuasion – not as a pro/con debate with winners and losers. This, in turn, promotes the essential critical-thinking skills needed for writing effective arguments.
In the 11th Edition, you’ll continue to find all the signature strengths – major assignment chapters that focus on one or two stases; discussion prompts and end-of-chapter writing assignments that reinforce concepts; comprehensive coverage of research and documentation; and a logical, yet flexible, approach. But now, you’ll also find a book that promises to increase understanding of the value of argument and help them negotiate the rhetorical divisiveness in today’s world
