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

I was required to purchase this book for a Masters level research design course. While the book is useful in explaining important concepts of critical thinking and analysis, it does so in a very, very basic way. It is equatable to something you would learn in a 100-level undergraduate critical thinking course.

If you are an undergraduate student, this book is definitely oriented to you, so it might be the right one for you. I am not in a position to necessarily recommend it to an undergrad, but certainly consider it.

If you are a post-graduate student, steer clear. This is not the critical thinking book for you. There are much better books geared toward post-graduate study.

It's everything you need to start studying philosophy and also a great book in general if you're interested in critical thought.
