Product Description

Review

Reviews of earlier editions:



'This concise guide offers relevant, rigorous and approachable methods…The authors focus on analysing and assessing arguments in a thoughtfully structured series of chapters, with clear definitions, a glossary, plenty of examples and some useful exercises.'

Will Ord, Times Educational Supplement

‘In my view this book is the most useful textbook on the market for its stated audience. It provides exceptionally clear explanations, with sufficient technical detail, but without over-complication. It is my first-choice text for teaching critical thinking to first-year undergraduate students.’

Dawn Phillips, University of Southampton

‘…written with actual undergraduates, and the standard mistakes and confusions that they tend to be subject to, clearly borne in mind…’

Helen Beebee, University of Manchester

'This is the best single text I have seen for addressing the level, presumptions, and interests of the non-specialist.'

Charles Ess, Drury University

Product Description

Critical Thinking: A Concise Guide is essential reading for anyone, student or professional, at work or in the classroom, seeking to improve their reasoning and arguing skills

&quote;
Arguments appeal to your critical faculties, your reason. Rhetoric, on the other hand, tends to rely on the persuasive power of certain words and verbal techniques to influence your beliefs, desires and actions by appeal to your desires, fears and other feelings. &quote;

&quote;
There are special terms for the two parts of arguments: the primary claim, the one we are trying to get others to accept, is the conclusion. The supporting claims, the ones intended to give us reasons for accepting the conclusion, are the premises. &quote;

&quote;
Rhetoric Any verbal or written attempt to persuade someone to believe, desire or do something that does not attempt to give good reasons for the belief, desire or action, but attempts to motivate that belief, desire or action solely through the power of the words used. &quote;
