"Real Thinking for Real Life"

For your classes in Critical Thinking, McGraw-Hill introduces THiNK, the latest in its acclaimed M Series. Critical Thinking begins by listening and we began THiNK by listening to and observing students and instructors. McGraw-Hill conducted extensive research to gain insight into students' studying and buying behavior, as well as instructor challenges. Students told us they wanted more portable texts with innovative visual appeal and content that is designed according to the way they learn. Instructors told us they wanted a way to engage their students without compromising on high quality content.

THiNK is critical thinking come to life. This innovative text provides instructors with scholarly yet succinct content on critical thinking and logical argumentation in a format that captivates students. With current examples, exercises, and applications, and powerful pedagogy that links concepts within and between chapters, THiNK directs students to make connections between skill development and application to their college studies, careers, and personal lives.

More current, more portable, more captivating, plus a rigorous and innovative research foundation adds up to: more learning. When you meet students where they are, you can take them where you want them to be.

About the Author:

Judith A. Boss earned her PhD in Philosphy from Boston University, her MA from Dalhousie University in Canada, and her BA from the University of Western Australia. Prior to pursing a career in academia, she worked as a writer/researcher for the Nova Scotia Museum. She was on the faculty of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Rhode Island from 1988 to 1995 and worked as Assistant Director of Curriculum Affairs at Brown University School of Medicine until 2004 when she "retired" to return to full-time writing and became a visiting scholar with the philosophy department at Brown University. She continued, until last year, to teach one course a semester at the University of Massachusetts. In addition to her philosophical interests, she completed a MS in Human Development at URI in 1991 and has led faculty workshops and written extensively on the topic of college student development. She was recipient of a URI Foundation Grant to study the effects of community service learning on students' moral development and has served as a grant application reviewer for the Corporation for National Service. The author of nine books, her publications include ANALYZING MORAL ISSUES and ETHICS FOR LIFE, both with McGraw-Hill. Her textbook THiNK, also with McGraw-Hill, just came out in 2009. She is published in, among other, The Journal of Moral Education, Public Affairs Quarterly, The Journal of Medical Ethics, Academic Medicine, Educational Theory, Free Inquiry, and The Journal of Experiential Education. During her spare time she volunteers with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services and is active in the Appalachian Mountain Club. An avid traveler, she has traveled with students from the University of Rhode Island and Brown Medical School to work with underserved, indigenous people in Guatemala and Mexico. Her favorite travel destination, however, is Antarctica, and she is currently looking for a publisher for a suspense/thriller she wrote that is set in Antarctica. She lives in Rhode Island with her daughter, son-in-law, and twin granddaughters.
