A Rhetoric of Argument: Brief Edition by Jeanne Fahnestock, Marie Secor

When it was first published in 1982, A Rhetoric of Argument developed a ground-breaking new approach to teaching argument. The stasis approach pioneered by Fahnestock and Secor distinguished among the four basic questions that arguments are written to answer: <BR>What is it? (Definition arguments)<BR>How did it get that way? (Causal arguments)<BR>Is it good or bad? (Evaluation arguments)<BR>What should we do about it? (Proposal arguments) <BR>These four questions, now standard in many argument texts, give students a constructive, engaging way to analyze readings by other writers and to construct their own arguments.
