HEINRICHS THANK YOU FOR ARGUING PDF

Summary Analysis Early in the morning, Jay Heinrichs sits in his kitchen, watching as his teenaged son George Heinrichs eats breakfast. Considering this incident later, Heinrichs realizes that he won the argument by making George believe that he won the argument. Jay Heinrichs, the author and narrator of the book, likes to use examples from his personal life, especially his family life. By beginning with a banal-seeming example of the power of arguing, Heinrichs tries to establish a connection with his audience his readers , most of whom, presumably, will be familiar with the kind of low-stakes, everyday arguments that Heinrichs mentions here.

Chapter 1 In Thank You for Arguing, Jay Heinrichs endeavors to show why the lost art of rhetoric—the study of argument and persuasion—can help people understand the world, help them succeed, and generally improve their lives.

There are, furthermore, three distinct kinds of arguments. The Greek philosopher Aristotle identified these three kinds as forensic argument which is concerned with blame, and which takes place mostly in the past tense , demonstrative argument which is concerned with values, and which takes place mostly in the present tense , and deliberative argument which is concerned with choices, and which takes place mostly in the future tense. One of the key rhetorical techniques is find the proper tense for a debate.

Too often and especially in politics , a deliberative debate about what to do devolves into an unwinnable demonstrative debate about values.

Aristotle also developed another important rhetorical distinction: the three methods of persuasion: logos argument by logic , ethos argument by character , and pathos argument by emotion. In the rest of the first part of the book, Heinrichs discusses how to use logos, ethos, and pathos to win an argument.

Decorum might involve dressing in appropriate clothing or using words with which the audience identifies. One of the most important aspects of logos is the definition of terms. By defining terms in an advantageous way, rhetoricians can stack the deck against their opponents. Heinrichs refers to this technique of tactical agreement as concession.

Another important application of logos is logic. Deductive logic involves reaching conclusions through syllogisms—showing how certain categories fit together. By contrast, inductive logic involves reaching conclusions by generalizing from a series of related examples.

Both inductive and deductive logic can be useful in an argument. In Part Two, Defense, Heinrichs begins by discussing some of the major logical fallacies that show up in arguments. In Part Three, Advanced Offense, Heinrichs discusses some rhetorical tricks that rhetoricians can use to spice up their arguments. There are many figures of speech and figures of thought that can be used to make an argument elegantly simple or make the expression of that argument seem particularly succinct and memorable.

As a consultant, Heinrichs pioneered a technique called the halo: offering a symbol that encapsulates a complex idea. Many talented speakers use halos as a kind of shorthand for their ideas. In the rest of Part Three, Heinrichs explores two important aspects of offensive argumentation. First, he gives some pointers for how to apologize skillfully. The study of kairos can also help a rhetorician identify the proper medium for an argument: each medium texting, TV, phone calls favors a different rhetorical technique, and lends itself to a particular kind of kairos.

In the final part of the book, Advanced Agreement, Heinrichs gives some examples of how to use rhetorical techniques. He delivers a short speech in a town hall about fighting noise pollution, using the five-step method of oration developed by the great Roman orator Marcus Tullius Cicero: invention, arrangement, style, memory, and delivery. He also studies the oratorical techniques of Barack Obama, one of the great recent rhetoricians.

In the final chapter of the book, Heinrichs observes that the study of rhetoric has almost vanished from the American educational system. Arn, Jackson. Retrieved March 10, Copy to Clipboard.
