Overview

This book examines the general principles of argument and then applies those principles to different spheres of life-politics, science, law, etc.--to explore how conventions of argument change when applied to real world arenas. A new chapter on evidence and argument in religion adds additional sphere to this edition and expands cultural diversity coverage. Projects at the end of each chapter allow readers to become actively involved in the material by applying the principles learned to real life. The book also employs real life examples throughout to help make the concepts clearer and help readers see the relevance of argumentative skills to their lives. For anyone interested in improving their argumentation skills.
