Summary The enthymeme in education is essential because it reflects what humans do when they think. It informs not only how we make inferences about the world to discover new knowledge, but also how we express those discoveries to influence the minds of others. Thus, the enthymeme provides an effective pedagogical approach to the analysis and synthesis of ideas in the classroom. In this volume, such an approach is applied to composition instruction, second-language learning, advertising, specialized medical texts, and detective fiction to help prepare students for the challenges of modern life. (Michael D. Hood)
«By means of new approaches to the enthymeme, new modes of representation, and new uses of the enthymeme in education (as demonstrated throughout the present work), we extend our knowledge of a concept that is central to understanding rationality as a human performance capability in the practical world.» (John T. Gage)
