After conversations about appeals and fallacies that are found in the “texts” that surround us, and the work of Wallace, Carson, and Leopold, we’ll now turn to making our own argument, based on the Toulmin model of argument, exploring the questions: “What Can We Live Without?”

In this paper, you will

  • Make an argument according to the Toulmin Model of argument answering the question “What Can We Live Without?”

To do that, you will:

  • Make a clear Claim, and expand on that through necessary points made in body paragraphs
  • Establish the Grounds for your argument
  • Understand the Warrant that connections your Claim and Grounds
  • Bring in multiple perspectives as Backing and Rebuttal, where necessary.

If you have these mapped out for class on 9/24, that would be wonderful.

Another way to approach this might be to answer one of these questions:

  • What is a habit or practice you enjoy, but might have ethical issues that are cause for concern?
  • How might your personal habits (and thus larger cultural habits) be harming the environment, and what could be done to mitigate those?
