The first and most thoroughly developed audience-oriented argumentation text has been updated to its 8th edition: Argumentation and Critical Decision Making presents argumentation as a cooperative, communicative process. This text examines the general principles of argument in a rigorous yet readable manner and then applies those principles to different spheres of life – law, science, religion, business, government, and politics – to explore how conventions of argument change when applied to these real-world arenas. Focusing on the dynamics of decision making and using real-life examples to illustrate principles, Argumentation and Critical Decision Making aims to help readers develop practical argumentation skills within the world of their daily lives.

✏The Total Question Workout Book Summary : Here’s the one-minute description of TQW: You have a Big Question of some kind. You know it’s a Big Question because it’s keeping you up at night, the outcome is important, and you don’t have a ready answer. There are four stages you need to go through to answer a Big Question. I don’t know where you are in the process; so let me describe the four stages. The first stage involves fully understanding your situation and your motives for wanting to resolve the question that comes from being in that situation. The second stage involves separating yourself from the situation you are in. You cannot resolve a situation if you see yourself as part of it. You have to gain perspective by separating yourself from your situation in as many ways as possible. The third stage involves letting go of something that keeps you attached to, and subject to, the situation you are in. Something is holding you back. Some fear, some projection of implications, some belief about what is possible and what is not possible. Something. As long as you hold onto these things they will hold you back. Fourth, you need to perceive new possibilities for resolving your Big Question. For various reasons, you are not able to see alternative resolutions today. You need to reframe your question in a way that will enable you to apply the substantial resources you have to address each and every part of the question. If you have a Big Question, you are stuck at one of those four stages. At which stage are you stuck? McClellan provides a complete roadmap for getting from the question you have to the question you need to answer. Dither no longer. Commit to the Total Question Workout. Address the Big Question you need to answer to take charge of running your business or your life. You can move forward. But first, you have to take the next step.

✏Disturbing Argument Book Summary : This edited volume represents the best of the scholarship presented at the 18th National Communication Association/American Forensic Association Conference on Argumentation. This biennial conference brings together a lively group of argumentation scholars from a range of disciplinary approaches and a variety of countries. Disturbing Argument contains selected works that speak both to the disturbing prevalence of violence in the contemporary world and to the potential of argument itself, to disturb the very relations of power that enable that violence. Scholars’ essays analyze a range of argument forms, including body and visual argument, interpersonal and group argument, argument in electoral politics, public argument, argument in social protest, scientific and technical argument, and argument and debate pedagogy. Contributors study argument using a range of methodological approaches, from social scientifically informed studies of interpersonal, group, and political argument to humanistic examinations of argument theory, political discourse, and social protest, to creatively informed considerations of argument practices that truly disturb the boundaries of what we consider argument.

✏Bioethical Decision Making and Argumentation Book Summary : This book clarifies the meaning of the most important and pervasive concepts and tools in bioethical argumentation (principles, values, dignity, rights, duties, deliberation, prudence) and assesses the methodological suitability of the main methods for clinical decision-making and argumentation. The first part of the book is devoted to the most developed or promising approaches regarding bioethical argumentation, namely those based on principles, values and human rights. The authors then continue to deal with the contributions and shortcomings of these approaches and suggest further developments by means of substantive and procedural elements and concepts from practical philosophy, normative systems theory, theory of action, human rights and legal argumentation. Furthermore, new models of biomedical and health care decision-making, which overcome the aforementioned criticism and stress the relevance of the argumentative responsibility, are included.

✏Advances in argumentation theory and research Book Summary : For this volume the editors commissioned the top theorists in argumentation and hu­man communication to submit essays in their areas of specialization. Because there are sixteen essays contrib­uted by twenty-one specialists, many points of view are represented in this volume; all of the essayists, however, look upon argumen­tation as a process of human communication, not a species of formal logic. These essayists see the function of argument as a method of attaining social knowledge. The editors have assembled this volume to make available the latest advances in argumentation; for schol­ars it serves as a “state of the discipline” report. The editors have divided the book into four sections: “Conceptual Foundations,” “Reasoning and Reasonableness,” “Meth­odological Issues,” and “Uses of Argument.” Those contributing under the heading “Con­ceptual Foundations” are: Daniel J. O’Keefe, Charles Arthur Willard, Ray D. Dearin, and Henry W. Johnstone, Jr. Contributors to the “Reasoning and Rea­sonableness” section are: Ray E. McKerrow, Thomas B. Farrell, Barbara J. O’Keefe, Pam­ela J. Benoit, Malcolm O. Sillars, and Patricia Ganer. Under “Methodological Issues” the contributors are: Scott Jacobs, Sally Jackson, V. William Balthrop, and Dale Hample. Contributors to “Uses of Argument” are: Ch. Perelman, E. Culpepper Clark, Robert P. Newman, Walter R. Fisher, Richard A. Fil­loy, and Richard D. Rieke.
