From the Back Cover
The Critical Thinker s Toolkit is a comprehensive compendium that equips readers with the essential tools and methods for clear, analytical, logical thinking and critique in a range of scholarly contexts and everyday situations. Following the proven format of The Philosopher s Toolkit and The Ethics Toolkit, it contains concise, easily digestible entries, see also recommendations that connect topics, and recommended reading lists. This guide takes an expansive approach by exploring concepts from other disciplines typically excluded from discussions of critical thinking. In addition to basic logic, the authors cover evidence and justification from philosophy, cognitive biases and errors from psychology, race and gender from sociology and political science, tropes and symbols from rhetoric, and much more. Exercises and real life examples at the end of each chapter allow readers to apply new critical thinking and reasoning skills. Ideal for beginning to advanced students, as well as general readers, this is a sophisticated yet accessible introduction to critical thinking. The Critical Thinker s Toolkit gives readers the knowledge they need to become discerning, engaged, and empowered thinkers in the world today.
