Summary: This text, the most comprehensive, readable, and theoretically sound book on the common fallacies, is designed to teach students how to construct and evaluate arguments. Throughout, the focus is on helping students recognize when they construct or encounter a good or successful argument of a particular action or belief. This skill is reinforced on every page of the text, from the first three chapters that focus on the criteria for a good argument, through the four ma ...show morejor chapters on the fallacies or ways that arguments can go wrong. The whole emphasis is more upon resolving issues than on pointing out flaws in arguments.

  • Considerable expansion of material on the nature of arguments, especially good arguments.
  • Reorganization of the fallacies into four chapters, each of which is devoted to a single criterion.
  • New Chapter 8 spells out a ''code of conduct'' - expressed in twelve carefully crafted principles - on how to participate in rational discussion of controversial issues.
  • Number of exercises more than doubled (increased from 160 to 350).
  • Deals with 60 of the most commonly committed fallacies, with more than 200 examples plus 350 exercises.
  • Helps readers recognize when an argument is a successful one by elaborating on the four criteria of a good arguments, including the so-called ''rebuttal criterion,'' and by consistently applying them throughout.
  • Glossary of all the fallacies included at the end of the text.
