THE ELEMENTS OF REASONING is a concise and lucid introduction to the basic elements of argumentative prose and the conceptual tools necessary to understand, analyze, criticize, and construct arguments. This text is not only perfect for a college course in argument analysis, but also as a reference tool when confronted with arguments outside the classroom experience. While THE ELEMENTS OF REASONING covers the standard formal tools of introductory logic, its emphasis is on practical applications to the kinds of arguments students most often encounter.

Review:

"I would adopt this textbook in a heartbeat for a class on critical thinking. I am impressed with how much is accomplished in a slim volume. The clarity of writing is one of the great strengths of this text."-- Elizabeth Meade , Cedar Crest College

"As a foundational guide to reasoning, Munson and Black's effort in this edition is commendable - well organized, filled with timely examples, and weighted with the clearest and most substantive content that I have seen in such a textbook."-- Jason Black , University of Alabama
