Product Description

Book Description

Studying critical thinking involves trying to change the ways in which most of us think. In this second edition of the popular 'Critical Thinking: An Introduction', Alec Fisher concentrates on developing critical thinking skills explicitly and directly. His aim is to teach the ability to interpret, analyse and evaluate ideas and arguments and to show how these skills can be transferred to other studies and everyday life. A new chapter covers getting reliable information from the internet and examples and passages have been replaced by completely new material. The book is also suitable for the independent learner.

About the Author

Alec Fisher was Director of the Centre for Research in Critical Thinking at the University of East Anglia, until his retirement in 1999. He is the author of Critical Thinking: An Introduction (Cambridge, 2001), which has already been translated into several languages. He continues to lecture and conduct workshops on reasoning and critical thinking skills all over the world.
