Offering an innovative approach to critical thinking, Good Reasoning Matters!, Fourth Edition, identifies the essential structure of good arguments in a variety of contexts and also provides guidelines to help students construct their own effective arguments. In addition to examining the most common features of faulty reasoning--slanting, bias, propaganda, vagueness, ambiguity, and a common failure to consider opposing points of view--the book introduces a variety of argument schemes and rhetorical techniques. It also includes an analysis of visual argumentation, which has become a significant aspect of critical thinking in the 21st century.
Significantly revised, the fourth edition is the most theoretically up-to-date text available. It features a wealth of new exercises, updated chapter summaries, new inter-chapter references, new study questions, and updated web links.
