About the Author:

Bruce N. Waller is Professor of Philosophy at Youngstown State University. He is the author of "Against Moral Responsibility" (MIT Press).

Review:

“Excellent: explanations are very clear; end of section exercises reinforce the material in the text very effectively; diagrams and inset examples are also helpful”  —Victoria Rogers, Indiana University- Perdue University Indianapolis

 

 

 

“I really liked the way Waller uses a court of law to organize this text.”  —Eli Kanon, University of North Florida

 

 

 

“I have been using Waller's book (4th and 5th editions) for years and I find it is an excellent way to introduce critical thinking to students and to show the importance of it in daily life. I especially like how he reasons out in words truth table reasoning rather than simply teaching it as a plug and chug methods.”  —Jean Miller, Virginia Tech

 

 

 

“I like the pedagogy of the book. Having used it in the past, it worked quite well.”  —Glenn Sanford, Sam Houston State University

 

 

 

“The first half of the text focuses on how to recognize and construct a good argument, while the second half of the text deals with how to recognize and avoid bad arguments."   —Chris Clayton, Portland Community College
