CRITICAL THINKING: A USER'S MANUAL offers an innovative skill-based approach to critical thinking that provides step-by-step tools for examining arguments. Students build a complete skill set by recognizing, analyzing, diagramming, and evaluating arguments; later chapters encourage application of the basic skills to categorical, truth-functional, analogical, generalization, and causal arguments as well as fallacies. The exercises throughout the text engage readers in active learning, integrate writing as part of the critical thinking process, and emphasize skill transference. A special feature, called Your Turn! encourages students to not just skim through the book's explanations, but stop, think, and apply what they are learning.

"Students often wonder why and how philosophy is relevant, but these examples illustrate well how good critical thinking skills, a real hallmark of a philosophical education, can help one make sense of the world." -- Andrew Jones-Cathcart, College of the Canyons
"This text is a one of a kind, user-friendly, viable resource that will benefit students in understanding the process of critical thinking". -- Judy Covington, Trident Technical College
