Understanding Arguments : Introduction to Informal Logic - 7th edition

Understanding Arguments : Introduction to Informal Logic (ISBN10: 053462586X; ISBN13: 9780534625863)
ISBN13: 978-0534625863
ISBN10: 053462586X

Summary: Now in its seventh edition, UNDERSTANDING ARGUMENTS has proven itself as an exceptional guide to understanding and constructing arguments in the context of a student's academic success and subsequent professional career. Its tried and true strengths include multiple approaches to the analysis of arguments, providing a variety of important tools; a thorough grounding on the uses of language in everyday discourse; and chapters in the latter half of the book that apply
abstract concepts to concrete legal, moral, and scientific issues.

Benefits:
  • NEW! New chapters on Rhetoric and Evaluation (Chapter 2) and Religious Reasoning (Chapter 17) provide additional and extensive coverage of these pertinent matters of argumentation.
  • NEW! This edition includes updated treatments of the 2003 Michigan Affirmative Action case and the perennial debate on creationism and evolution.
  • NEW! New passages for close and deep analysis are included--in particular passages pertaining to mysteries.
  • NEW! New diagrams for complex arguments and for Bayes' theorem assist students in mastering these concepts.
  • Exercises, discussion questions, chapter objectives, and readings (drawn from a variety of disciplines and genres) test analytical skills.
  • Primarily an introduction to informal logic, the book still devotes three chapters to formal logic covering the rudiments of propositional, categorical, and quantificational logic.
  • Part II, Areas of Argumentation, delves into very practical applications of informal logic, including legal argumentation, moral arguments, scientific reasoning, and philosophical argumentation.
