Summary: For undergraduate-level courses in Logic, Critical Thinking, Informal Logic, and Deductive Logic.

Bridging the gap between introductory logic texts and those texts that emphasize critical thinking only, Critical Reasoning and Logic presents a process that enables students to apply proper reasoning techniques in a practical fashion. It encourages them to not only evaluate someone else's reasoning, but to apply these techniques to their own writing and reaso morening.

Features :

  • Emphasis on identifying arguments--Acknowledged as one of the most difficult skills for a beginning student to master.
  • Allows students to begin with problems they can easily do, but then takes them toward problems that are much more difficult so that they can gradually grasp this difficult concept. Gives instructors numerous problems to work through with their students.
  • Inductive Reasoning--Covers one third of the text.
  • Shows students how to realistically evaluate most of the materials they read and write as those materials rely heavily on inductive reasoning. Gives instructor adequate materials to present a solid introduction to inductive reasoning.
  • Focus on the correlation between writing and good reasoning.
  • Teaches students what they must offer in terms of evidence to support their claim when writing a paper.
  • Practical and relevant material.
  • Encourages students to develop a process of evaluation and decision making that applies to their other coursework and future careers.
  • A range of problems--From simple to complex.
  • Gives instructors flexibility in assigning homework. Allows students to gain confidence with the simpler problems before they progress to the more difficult problems.
  • Examples of student papers.
  • Gives students a model to look at as they are developing their own papers. Gives instructors a realistic view of what to expect from a student who is just learning critical reasoning. less
