Product description

Review

"There is an intimate and difficult–to–articulate connection between clear thinking and writing. A. P. Martinich has written a masterful book, chock full of examples, in which this connection is made explicit ... There is nothing like it in the available literature. I recommend it enthusiastically." Professor Avrum Stroll, University of California at San Diego

"Beautifully crafted, Philosophical Writing dispels the myth that the art of good writing cannot be taught. In a most engaging manner, Martinich details how students can incorporate the virtues of cogency, clarity, and directness into their writing. It is difficult to imagine any undergraduate who will not benefit from reading this exemplary book." Professor Mark Bernstein, University of Texas at San Antonio

From the Back Cover

This is the substantially updated and revised edition of A. P. Martinich′s best–selling text, Philosophical Writing: An Introduction. It′s goal is to help those with little or no experience in philosophy to write successfully. By improving students′ ability to present their knowledge and thoughts clearly, it helps them gain confidence in their essay–writing skills.

This new edition includes three new sections on Contraries and Contradictions, Distinctions, and Definitions, as well as a glossary of those terms peculiar to philosophical prose (such as "obtain" and "straw man"). The second edition retains the highly acclaimed commentary on features of an essay, showing the evolution from draft stage to completion of a good paper, a crash course on logic, and a clear description of types of reasoning. It also discusses the special problem of being a student–author writing for a professor.
