Argumentation And Debate

Argumentation And Debate

Widely praised, ARGUMENTATION AND DEBATE, 13E, uses a clear, concise, and engaging presentation that makes even complex material easy for students to understand. The authors have adapted the text over the years to match changing practices in debate and teaching while preserving classical and conventional approaches to learning debate. This edition retains its rhetorical roots with a flexible tone open to a diverse array of debate styles that is appropriate in the contemporary context. It values the importance of inclusion and sensitivity to differences of culture, gender, orientation, class and other factors as they impact communicative choices and argumentation. The authors have a preference for team topic evidence-based policy debate; however, the text strives to offer viable tools for a wide range of readers interested in improving their critical thinking for reasoned decision making.

Argumentation And Debate

Argumentation And Debate

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!

Debate And Critical Analysis

Debate And Critical Analysis

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.

Decision By Debate

Decision By Debate

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.
