Synopsis:

Argumentation in Everyday Life provides you with the tools you need to argue effectively in the classroom and beyond. Jeffrey P. Mehltretter Drury offers rich coverage of theory while balancing everyday applicability, allowing you to use your skills soundly. Drury introduces the fundamentals of constructing and refuting arguments using the Toulmin model and ARG conditions (Acceptability, Relevance, and Grounds). Numerous real-word examples are connected to the theories of rhetoric and argumentation discussed—enabling you to practice and apply the content in personal, civic, and professional contexts, as well as traditional academic debates. Encouraging self-reflection, this book empowers you to find your voice and create positive change through argumentation in everyday life.
