Summary

A favorite for the first course in logic, this book has two parts. The first part presents a linguistic approach to argument, examining its language rather than its abstract structure. The second part contains many topical articles to be read for their arguments. The book has a clear and lively style and discusses argument in everday language, demonstrating the relevance of close argument analysis to a wide range of subjects.

This text may be used in courses on critical thinking, informal logic, language and argument, or introduction to logic.
