DISCOVERING ARGUMENTS: AN INTRODUCTION TO CRITICAL THINKING AND WRITING, WITH READINGS,byDean MemeringandWilliam Palmer,focuses on the thought processes and research involved in argumentation and provides students with the necessary background to write critically and effectively. The text fully incorporates the rhetorical triangle of persuasive appeals: logos, pathos, and ethos. These powerful appeals offer students both analytical and persuasive tools that form the core of reading, writing, and thinking activities in the text. The text uses inductive learning throughout to encourage students to discover new ideas and skills. After students have discovered or inferred ideas for themselves, the ideas are explained in depth. In addition to its innovative approach, the text offers the following features: Over 100 professional and student writings on divisive issues including male/female communication styles, racial profiling, abortion, gun control, and gambling Unique interchapters on style and voice in brief sections between major chapters Various sections on arguing methods such as Rogerian argument, the Toulmin strategy, and inductive and deductive reasoning Engaging student journal activities that encourage students to track their progress Comprehensive coverage on how to evaluate and document sources-including electronic sources By engaging students logically, emotionally, and ethically,DISCOVERING ARGUMENTSis more accessible and stimulating than any other argument textbook on the market.Memering, Dean is the author of 'Discovering Arguments An Introduction to Critical Thinking and Writing, With Readings' with ISBN 9780137596140 and ISBN 0137596146.
