Using the Enthymeme to Emphasize Ethics in Professional Writing Courses.
Jacobi, Martin J.
Journal of Business Communication, v27 n3 p273-92 Sum 1990
Proposes consideration of professional writing instruction as a course in rhetoric which necessarily involves ethics. Argues that use of the classical enthymeme (a syllogism which builds upon assumptions rather than empirical truths) helps students learn how writing's ethical implications can be managed in the interest of effective, socially responsible communication.
