The concepts for each chapter work together to achieve the goal of aiding students to develop their evaluation abilities and to consider their beliefs in a mature and intelligent way. Students will learn to look closely at the kinds of reasons that can be given for beliefs, think hard about how to evaluate reasoning, and develop the skill of effectively presenting that evaluation to others. Throughout the book, numerous examples and exercises work to strengthen student's critical and expository abilities.
