IN THIS SUMMARY

In Winning Arguments, Stanley Fish states that arguments are everywhere: They are unavoidable and interminable, and everyone has them. He elaborates on this statement by revealing how the construction of arguments and the art of persuasion can be broadly applied in a number of settings to win over opponents and gain popular opinion. Fish shares his views of how arguments play out in four distinct settings—political, domestic, legal, and academic—and he demonstrates through a multitude of modern and historical examples how conflicts arise and how players can be victorious.
