DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Is critical argumentation an effective way to overcome disagreement? And does the exchange of arguments bring opponents in a controversy closer to the truth? This study provides a new perspective on these pivotal questions. By means of multi-agent simulations, it investigates the truth and consensus-conduciveness of controversial debates. The book brings together research in formal epistemology and argumentation theory. Aside from its consequences for discursive practice, the work may have important implications for philosophy of science and the way we construe scientific rationality as well.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Maasa Kevin Desire's Argumentation and Debate was inspired by the difficulties most Sub-Saharan debaters face in formulating winning arguments and ultimately winning the debate. This book thus offers a step by step guide to mastering the art of argumentation and debate while debating in the World Schools Debate Format. Unlike most debate manuals, this book not only offers an in-depth analysis on the nittygritties of the World School Debate Format, which include but not limited to an understanding of team burdens, case development, motion analysis, speaker roles, but also offers a great insight on material on the art of argumentation such as critical thinking, argument construction, assessment and evaluation, logical reasoning, advanced rebuttal - which actually form the heart of any debate. Some of the Chapters in the book are concluded with a section containing FAQs by debaters and coaches. These sections are aimed at expanding the debaters' understanding of the WSD formalities, and also provide answers to some of the most common controversies in debate. Whereas the information in this book has been greatly allied to the World School's Debate Format, it does not mean that it may not be worthwhile for other debate formats. The great debater will actually find this information impressively relevant to debating in other formats of debate. You therefore needn't wait to read. Read now and be ready whenever!

Decision by Debate

Decision by Debate
Author: Douglas Ehninger,Wayne Brockriede
Release: 2008
Editor: IDEA
Pages: 444
ISBN: 1932716475
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Decision by Debate broke new ground in argumentation and debate with its publication in 1963. Ehninger and Brockriede were the first to recognize debate as fundamentally a co-operative enterprise, with the competitive clash of ideas occurring within a framework in which everyone has the opportunity to speak, in which everyone agrees to suspend judgment until all arguments are presented, in which everyone agrees to abide by the decision of the adjudicator. The most lasting legacy of the work is its break with formal, deductive logic and its introduction of Stephen Toulmin's model of argument to undergraduate student debaters, which, since then, has become a mainstay of what many have called the Renaissance of argumentation studies. Without the work presented in Decision by Debate, contemporary interdisciplinary views of argumentation that now dominate many disciplines might have never have taken place or at least have been severely delayed.

Release: 2013-10-16
Editor: Routledge
Pages: 264
ISBN: 9781136695520
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Rather than approach debate primarily as a form of interscholastic competition, this unique book identifies it as an activity that occurs in many settings: scientific conferences, newspaper op-ed pages, classrooms, courts of law, and everyday domestic life. Debate is discussed as an integral part of academic inquiry in all disciplines. As in all fields of study, various competing views are advanced and supported; Debate and Critical Analysis is designed to better prepare the student to assess and engage them. This text posits four characteristics of true debate -- argument development, clash, extension, and perspective -- which form the basic structure of the book. Each concept or aspect of argument covered is illustrated by an example drawn from contemporary or historical sources, allowing the reader to actually see the techniques and strategies at work. All popular forms of competitive debate, including "policy," "Lincoln-Douglas," "value-oriented," and "parliamentary," are discussed in detail -- as embedded in the actual topical controversies with which they are concerned. In this way, the student can learn the structures, reasoning processes, and strategies that may be employed, as well as the practical affairs of debating, from brief-writing to the flowsheet.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

An argumentation and debate textbook for the digital age. Composing Arguments combines traditional and contemporary theory with the online argument mapping tool Debategraph. This edition covers basic concepts regarding the definition and composition of arguments. The theory focuses on informal logic and is heavily influenced by Stephen Toulmin and Ludwig Wittgenstein, but traces the roots of argumentation theory to Aristotle. The first half of the textbook includes explanations of the syllogism, enthymeme, and the Toulmin model. Additionally, there are images of argument maps to illustrate the concepts, as well as exercises for students to use for studying. The second half of the textbook has step-by-step instructions for using Debategraph, complete with assignments that have been tried and tested in the classroom. This book represents the next step in argumentation and debate instruction. Use it for the class, or for instruction for competitive debate.

Argumentation in Everyday Life

Language: en

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"Good coverage of concepts with understandable explanations of theory. Very user friendly with exercises to use in and out of class. Connects well with other communication classes through the application of other communication concepts to argumentation." —Christopher Leland, Azusa Pacific University Argumentation in Everyday Life provides students with the tools they need to argue effectively in the classroom and beyond. Jeffrey P. Mehltretter Drury offers rich coverage of theory while balancing everyday applicability, allowing students to use their skills soundly. Drury introduces the fundamentals of constructing and refuting arguments using the Toulmin model and ARG conditions (Acceptability, Relevance, and Grounds). Numerous real-world examples are connected to the theories of rhetoric and argumentation discussed—enabling students to practice and apply the content in personal, civic, and professional contexts, as well as traditional academic debates. Encouraging self-reflection, this book empowers students to find their voice and create positive change through argumentation in everyday life. Unique resources to help students navigate this complex terrain of argumentation: "The Debate Situation" offers students a birds-eye view of any given debate (or exchange of arguments between two or more people) organized around three necessary components: arguments, issues, and the proposition. The visual model of the debate situation illustrates how these features work together in guiding a debate and it lays the groundwork for understanding and generating arguments. Easy to Use Standards for Evaluating Arguments combine a prominent argument model (named after logician Stephen Toulmin) with a standards-based approach (the ARG conditions) to test of quality of an argument. The ARG conditions are three questions an advocate should ask of an argument in determining whether or not it is rationally persuasive. These questions are best served by research but don’t necessary require it, and thus they provide a useful posture for critically assessing the arguments you encounter. Multiple "Everyday Life" examples with an emphasis on context help students to connect the lessons more fully to their everyday life and encourages them to grapple explicitly with dilemmas arising in different contexts. "Find Your Voice Prompts" focus on choice & empowerment to offer strategies for students to choose which arguments to address and how to address them—empowering students to use argumentation to find their voice. "Build Your Skill Prompts" use objective applications to test how well students have learned the information. They offer a chance to apply the material to additional examples that students can check against the answers in Appendix II. Two application exercises at the end of each chapter encourage students to think critically about the content, discuss their thoughts with their peers, and apply the material to everyday situations.

Author: Philip Dalton,John R. Butler

Pages: 164
ISBN: 1433111675
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Through an exclusive focus on public policy advocacy as a practical endeavor, Philip Dalton and John R. Butler depart from approaches to debate education that focus on the rules of simulated, academic debate formats. Beginning with the assumption that readers have already developed a basic capacity to argue, they offer practical guidance for determining the fundamental issues that make up a controversy and what expectations public audiences will have for advocacy based on the issues and the burdens of advocates challenging or defending the status quo. Through examples that span a wide range of advocacy situations and subjects of contemporary importance, the authors build a framework for public policy advocacy that is organic to the communication discipline, recover and refresh foundational lessons about the uses of evidence, and provide critical questions that can be used to develop and communicate policy proposals that are sensible and appealing. Written in an accessible, respectful, and motivational style, the book is suitable for students of debate, professionals who function as advocates, and people who find themselves wishing to voice their opinion on an issue of concern.
