Critical Reasoning: A Practical Introduction
In this third edition, Anne Thomson has updated and revised the book to include fresh and topical examples which will guide students through the processes of critical reasoning in a clear and engaging way. In addition, two new chapters on evaluating the credibility of evidence and decision making and dilemmas will fully equip students to reason well. By the end of the book students should be able to:
identify flaws in arguments
analyze the reasoning in newspaper articles, books and speeches
assess the credibilty of evidence and authorities
make sound decisions and solve dilemmas
approach any topic with the ability to reason and think critically.
