Craft of Argument


This is the top argument rhetoric guide on using the Toulmin system of argument. Written by the authors of such successful composition titles as "Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity and Grace "(AWL) and "The Craft of Research" (Chicago UP), "The Craft of Argument" is an argument rhetoric worth looking at! "The Craft of Argument" is based on the Toulmin system of argument" and has a brief selection of readings. Reviewers have raved about the modifications to Toulmin that Williams and Colomb have made, where the authors have streamlined the Toulmin system further than any other book while retaining its fundamental insights, and power. The book also consists of seventeen thoughtfully selected readings, as well as useful writing instructions. A checklist of questions for planning and revising is located in a special section tabbed halfway through the book. This checklist will help readers build stronger arguments by asking them general and detailed (sentence-specific) questions regarding their arguments. Two significant appendices are included for reference: 1) logical fallacies to recognize and avoid, and 2) bibliographic citations (both MLA and APA). For anyone interested in leaning how to construct and write arguments very well. Hide synopsis
