Author: Jeff McLaughlin
Publisher: Peterborough, Ontario ; Tonawanda, NY : Broadview Press, [2014] ©2014
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
Begins with the premise that we are all, every day, engaged in critical thinking. But as we may develop bad habits in daily life if we don't scrutinize our practices, so we are apt to develop bad habits in critical thinking if we are careless in our reasoning. This book exists to instill good thinking habits: attentiveness to word choice, avoidance of fallacies, and effective construction and assessment of arguments.
