Eristic Zeal is part of the five-work Miniature Suite, commissioned by Kappa Kappa Psi, National Band Fraternity, and Tau Beta Sigma, National Band Sorority for the 2017 national convention. Merriam-Webster defines Eristic as “argumentative as well as logically invalid” and the word derives from Eris, Greek goddess of strife. Eristic Zeal is the eager pursuit of argumentative strife, full of self-certainty, seeking to provoke, rather than resolve.
