The Essential Enthymeme

Propositions for Educating Students in a Modern World

Edited By Jorge Juan Vega y Vega

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.

Canary Islands will certainly soon surpass other Spanish provinces, currently proud of their comprehensive educational system, if the Archipelago continues in the same line, that is, if the number of secular, primary schools keeps on gradually increasing.

(Eugène Pégot-Ogier, 1869)
