Read Chapter 8, A Philosopher’s View: The Toulmin Model from our book. Your goal is to understand the four main parts of an argument according to Toulmin (claim, grounds, warrants, and rebuttals).
Then, read “We Need More Humanities Majors” by Christian Madsbjerg and Mikkel Rasmussen in Chapter 13. In this article, the authors argue that humanities degrees are still valuable even in our tech focused country.
In a one page response, answer the following questions about the article.
What is the main claim of the argument?
What grounding/ support do the authors provide?
What warrants can you find underlying the authors’ argument? (I know these warrants are confusing and difficult, but do your best!)
What is the rebuttal the authors make?
