Summary

A concise text on critical thinking, reading, writing, and argument. The four chapters in Part One show students how to recognize and evaluate assumptions as a way to start analyzing arguments. The three chapters in Part Two help students apply critical thinking and reading skills to writing analytical, critical, and researched papers.

A comprehensive and flexible argument reader with two anthologies. In addition to the 53 readings throughout the text, the first anthology includes 57 selections that prompt students to think and write critically about 14 pressing current issues. The second anthology contains 26 classic selections and literary works that explore three enduring philosophical questions. In-depth casebooks -- multiple readings on controversial topics -- appear in both the text and the reader.

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).
