Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Arguments about Arguments
Subtitle: Systematic, Critical and Historical Essays in Logical Theory
Written By: Maurice A. Finocchiaro
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521853273
Description:

Following an approach that is empirical but not psychological, and
dialectical but not dialogical, Maurice Finocchiaro defines concepts such
as reasoning, argument, argument analysis, critical reasoning,
methodological reflection, judgment, critical thinking, and informal
logic. Including extended critiques of the views of many contemporary
scholars, he also integrates into the discussion Arnauld's Port-Royal
Logic, Gramsci's theory of intellectuals, and case studies from the
history of science, particularly the work of Galileo, Newton, Huygens, and
Lavoisier.
