We all engage in the process of reasoning, but we not always pay attention to whether we are doing it well. This book offers the opportunity to practice reasoning in a clear-headed and critical way, with the aims of developing an awareness of the importance of reasoning well, and of improving the reader's skill in analysing and evaluating arguments. In this second edition of the highly successful Critical Reasoning: A Practical Introduction , Ann Thomson has updated and revised the book to include new and topical examples which will guide students through the processes of critical reasoning in a clear and engaging way. By the end of the book students should be able to: Identify flaws in arguments, Analyse the reasoning in newspaper articles, books and speeches, Approach any topic with the ability to reason clearly and think critically.
