Critical Thinking

Thinking critically is an essential skill for both scholarship and life. Written in a clear, reader-friendly style, Critical Thinking: An Appeal to Reason offers students a thorough grounding in critical analysis and argumentation. The companion website includes additional resources for both instructors and students.

Here's what instructors are saying about Critical Thinking: An Appeal to Reason:

"Peg Tittle’s Critical Thinking: An Appeal to Reason is the ideal book for any class, philosophy and otherwise, in which evaluating arguments is central. Few texts are as thorough, and none are as accessible, clear, and pleasurable. Critical Thinking is chock-full of examples of arguments and fallacies from Tittle’s fecund imagination, as well as an astonishing breadth of sources from classic to contemporary—enough to capture any student’s attention. Add to this some wonderfully lucid diagrams, and you have a book that is unmatched by any in its field."

- Ron Cooper, Professor of Philosophy, College of Central Florida
