The first integrated program designed specifically for the critical thinking course, Moore & Parker's "Critical Thinking" teaches students the skills they need in order to think for themselves - skills they will call upon in this course, in other college courses, and in the world that awaits. The authors' practical and accessible approach illustrates core concepts with concrete real-world examples, extensive practice exercises, and a thoughtful set of pedagogical features. Connect and LearnSmart for Critical Thinking coalesce in a highly adaptive learning environment where each student gets the targeted help he or she needs for more efficient mastery of course concepts.
Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. It provides tools that make assessment easier, learning more engaging, and studying more efficient. For instance, Connect contains SmartBook, the first and only adaptive reading experience available for the higher education market. Powered by the intelligent and adaptive LearnSmart engine, SmartBook facilitates the reading process by identifying what content a student knows and doesn't know. As a student reads "Critical Thinking," the material continuously adapts to ensure that he or she is focused on the content most crucial to closing specific knowledge gaps.

Brooke Moore and Richard Parker have taught philosophy at California State University, Chico, for almost as long as they can remember. Moore has been that university s Outstanding Professor, and both he and Parker have received top academic honors on their campus. Moore has seen several terms as department chair, and Parker has served as chair of the academic senate and dean of undergraduate education.
Moore has a bachelor s degree in music from Antioch College and a PhD in philosophy from the University of Cincinnati; Parker did his undergraduate degree at the University of Arkansas and his PhD at the University of Washington, both in philosophy.
Moore has finally given up being the world s most serious amateur volleyball player. He and Marianne share their house and life with several dogs. He has never sold an automobile.
Parker gets around in a 1962 MG or on a Harley softail. He plays golf for fun, shoots pool for money, and plays guitar for a semiprofessional flamenco troupe. He gets to Spain as often as he is able.
The two have remained steadfast friends through it all. They are never mistaken for one another.
