Summary:

  • Complete coverage of informal fallacies. Students learn how to classify and avoid the most common errors in argumentative writing.
  • Examples from a variety of diverse sources. With examples from classic and contemporary literature, philosophy, politics, advertising, and the mass media, students learn how to strengthen their own argumentative abilities and spot errors in current public debate. ...show more>Humorous and engaging presentation. Engel's entertaining prose style along with humorous cartoons taken from many sources keep students engaged and learning.
  • Introductory chapters on the nature and use of logic and the medium of language. These chapters enable the book to be used as a stand-alone text for both a critical thinking course and a lower-level logic course.
  • Numerous exercises and study aids. More than 300 exercises provide students with practice in recognizing the various forms of informal fallacies. Answers to selected exercises and chapter summaries are provided at the end of every chapter. An appendix, Writing with Clarity and Reason, helps students select topics for papers and write more effectively
  • Stronger coverage of logic and language. Part One has been revised to include more information on eliminating verbiage and finding the missing component syllogistically. The section on deductive argument now includes a cogent explanation of the use of Venn diagrams.
  • More support for troublesome fallacies. There are now better explanations and more examples for the fallacies with which students have the greatest difficulty -- amphiboly, division and composition, begging the question, false cause, and special pleading.
  • Three new sample tests with answers. The Instructor's Edition includes three new sample tests with answers. Instructors can give these tests to students for self-checking purposes or can use them as class exams.
  • A glossary of terms. This edition features a glossary, giving students an easy reference for new terms and meanings.
  • Annotated student essays. The Appendix, Writing with Clarity and Reason, features two annotated student essays that offer students good models for their own writing.
  • New cartoons. Two thirds of the cartoons in this edition are new, providing current and humorous examples of the fallacies.
