Summary: A compact but comprehensive guide to critical thinking and argumentation. Comprising the text portion of the widely adopted Current Issues and Enduring Questions, this affordable guide provides a thorough introduction to critical thinking and argumentation and can stand alone or supplement a larger anthology of readings for a composition or literature course.

A practical approach to critical thinking, reading, and writing. The four chapters in Part One show ...show more students how to recognize and evaluate assumptions as a way to start annotating, summarizing, and analyzing arguments. The three chapters in Part Two help students apply critical thinking and reading skills to writing analytical, critical, and researched papers.

59 provocative readings (about one third new). The readings provide arguments designed for student response, and are accompanied by headnotes and questions that prompt students to think and write critically about pressing current issues (such as diversity in college admissions, drilling for arctic oil, and everyday ethical questions), and a classic philosophical question (what is the ideal society?). Five in-depth casebooks provide a variety of perspectives on the issues.

Unique section on alternative perspectives on argument. Seven chapters in Part Three introduce students to the following approaches to argument: philosophical (the Toulmin model); logical (deduction, induction, fallacies); ethical; legal; psychological (Rogerian); literary; and forensic (oral argument and debate). ...show less
