The Aims of Argument: A Text and Reader by Timothy W. Crusius

The Aims of Argument, a comprehensive text for teaching argument, recognizes that people argue with a range of purposes in mind: to inquire, to convince, to persuade, and to negotiate. It offers a clear, logical learning sequence rather than merely a collection of assignments: inquiry is the search for truth, what we call an earned opinion, which then becomes the basis of efforts to convince others to accept our earned opinions. Case-making, the essence of convincing, is then carried over into learning how to persuade, which, requires explicit attention to appeals to character, emotion, and style. Finally, the previous three aims all play roles in negotiation, which amounts to finding and defending positions capable of appealing to all sides in a dispute or controversy.

These speakers vehemently proclaim their opinions about the big issues of our day, aggressively arguing their position on everything from abortion, to gay marriage, to terrorism and its causes. In fact, most savvy viewers soon realize that the verbal combatants featured on cable TV are engaged in only one kind of argumentation: persuasion. These speakers want to persuade us to see their point of view, and will employ whatever rhetorical device necessary to sway our opinion, including, perhaps, being less than truthful in detailing the facts of a given dispute, or employing strident emotional appeals that disregard any sense of reason. But there is more than one form of argumentation than persuasion, despite the fact that most people, and especially college students, are rarely conscious of those other forms. How can students learn about and differentiate between methods and aims of argumentation so that they can become knowledgeable participants in public debates? How do they avoid falling into the argument culture trap, a trap that seemingly values only confrontation and not genuine dialogue?
