9780312459871: Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing: A Brief Guide to Argument

Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing is a compact but thorough guide to critical thinking and argumentation. Comprising the text portion of the widely adopted Current Issues and Enduring Questions, it draws on the authors' dual expertise in effective persuasive writing and rigorous critical thinking. It helps students move from critical thinking to argumentative and researched writing. With comprehensive coverage of classic and contemporary approaches to argument, including Aristotle, Toulmin, and a range of alternative views, it is an extraordinarily versatile text. This affordable guide can stand alone or supplement a larger anthology of readings. Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing has been revised to address current student interests and trends in argument, research, and writing.
