This textbook is ideal for introductory logic courses, as well as critical thinking courses. Salmon offers instructors a unique approach: she presents material on inductive reasoning before deductive reasoning. Numerous examples and problems allow students to check their mastery of a topic. This authoritative textbook presents logic and critical thinking in an accessible way, allowing students to use their new skills in their daily life as well as in the classroom. Features: * Each chapter opens with a chapter outline and ends with a review section with a glossary of new terms. * Presents a variety of examples and exercises throughout each chapter to demonstrate the usefulness of critical thinking skills in everyday life. * Appendixes cover the proof method for truth-functional logic and fallacies. New to this edition: * Over 20 per cent new exercises are included ranging from simple to more difficult. * Answers to odd-numbered exercises appear in the back of the book for students to self-check their work: answers to remaining exercises are in the INSTRUCTOR'S SOLUTIONS MANUAL. * Material on the language of arguments now appears earlier in the text (Chapter 2). * Treatment of fallacies has been expanded.
