William Hughes' 'Critical Thinking' is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the essential skills required to make strong arguments. Hughes gives a thorough treatment of such traditional topics as deductive and inductive reasoning, logical fallacies and how to spot them, the importance of inference, how to recognise and avoid ambiguity, and how to assess what is or is not relevant to an argument. But he also covers a variety of topics not always treated in books of this sort: special concerns to keep in mind when reasoning about ethical matters; and how the nature of language can affect the structure of an argument. The book gives a lucid treatment of the differences between descriptive and evaluative meaning: one person's freedom fighter is another person's terrorist. Last but not least, 'Critical Thinking' includes a selection of logical paradoxes and puzzles that are as entertaining as they are enlightening. For the third edition a new chapter on criti! cal thinking and the media has been added and the text has been revised and updated throughout.
