Product Details

Product Description


"Critical thinking and logic courses are intimidating, sometimes negative experiences for students. If this is your experience, I recommend The Power of Critical Thinking to you as a great tool for teaching the basics." --Ken Kirkwood, University of Western Ontario

"I found [The Power of Critical Thinking] more readable, accessible, and engaging than the other critical thinking texts I've read or used. I think it is really pitched at the right level for introductory students in critical thinking. Its exemplary organization, comprehensive coverage of essential topics in critical thinking, ample bank of exercises, and the corresponding website with student and lecturer resources, certainly made my job much easier." --Glen Hoffmann, Ryerson University

"I appreciate the Canadian examples. . . The overall style is lively and encourages student engagement." --John Wilkinson, Wilfrid Laurier University

Book Description

The highly-anticipated second Canadian edition of The Power of Critical Thinking is a comprehensive, engaging introduction to the skills of scientific and moral reasoning, logic, and argumentative essay-writing. Starting with a look at the basic concepts required to think critically, the text explores such compelling topics as how to assess the credibility of a website, why it's important to be wary of advertising, and how psychological and social factors such as bias, habit, tradition, emotion, and philosophical outlook impede clear thinking. Written in lively, conversational prose and filled with Canadian references and examples, The Power of Critical Thinking is essential for Canadian students taking courses in critical thinking, critical reasoning, practical logic, and rhetoric and reasoning.

Ordered this because I needed it for my philosophy class, I knew it was the second edition and not the third but it was perfectly fine for my class. The information and explanations were just as good.

It was in perfect condition when it arrived. I was very pleased! Such a good deal. Something like only 28.00 "used" though it didnt seem used at all! Perfect and I sold it for more than it was worth!

This is a great text for 1 year level university students to expand on how and why they think what they do, and why we should not simply take everything at face value. Excellent seller, quick and accurate.

The book was in great condition. I am using it for school and I purchased it for significantly less than other students.
