Now in its second edition, Critical Thinking and Logic: A Philosophical Workbook is an inexpensive but comprehensive
introduction. Examples and homework problems touch on philosophical issues much more so than standard texts do,
providing instructors an opportunity to ease into philosophical discussions as desired and piquing student interest.
Homework assignments are on tear-out pages for ease of use.
While Critical Thinking and Logic: A Philosophical Workbook covers standard issues of critical thinking such as
argument types and fallacies, it also provides a solid foundation for an advanced course in formal logic. The final chapter
includes a complete translation of Descartes's Meditations, allowing students to put their newly acquired skills to work on a
classic work of philosophy.
