Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking

In this new edition the authors have expanded on how to improve information acquisitions skills and recognize dubious claims, gravely important in this current climate of “fake news.” In addition, they have revised and expanded the distinction between subjective judgments and objective claims and revamped their explanation of inductive reasoning into four different types, introducing them in chapter 2 and further explaining them in chapter 11.

This book is not about critical thinking as much as it is a book in critical thinking. The authors work to provide guided practice in what they and instructors think are the most important critical thinking skill sets for students.
