Critical Thinking Summary


Attempts to persuade us - to believe something, to do something, to buy something - are everywhere. What is less clear is how to think critically about such attempts and how to distinguish those that are sound arguments. Critical Thinking is a much-needed guide to argument analysis and a clear introduction to thinking clearly and rationally for oneself. Through clear and accessible discussion, this book equips students with the essential skills required to tell a good argument from a bad one. Key features of the book include: Clear, jargon-free discussion of key concepts in argumentation How to avoid common confusions surrounding words such as 'truth', 'knowledge' and 'opinion' How to identify and evaluate the most common types of argument How to spot fallacies in arguments and tell good reasoning from bad Topical examples from politics, sport, medicine, music; chapter summaries; glossary and exercises throughout. Critical Thinking is essential reading for anyone, student or professional, at work or in the classroom, seeking to improve their reasoning and arguing skills.
