About the Author:

Nigel Warburton is the author of the bestseller, Philosophy the Basics, 2nd Edition, also published by Routledge.

Review:

"Nigel Warburton's clear to-the-point style is a winner. Its brevity commends it. The work is far more readable than most. Warburton's examples are topical, and he goes to great lengths and succeeds in communicating his material in a lively and entertaining fashion." -- Alex Orenstein, City University of New York

"Written in a clear and unpretentious style, it will be readily accessible to the ordinary intelligent reader. It presupposes no special background knowledge. It should be particularly useful for sixth-formers and undergraduates in the humanities and social sciences, who need to sharpen up their argumentation in essays. It also provides a useful antidote to various spurious forms of argument common in political debate and in the popular news media." -- Jonathan Lowe, University of Durham
