More than any other textbook, Moore and Parker's Critical Thinking has defined the structure and content of the critical thinking course at colleges and universities across the country-and the authors have done so with a fun and witty writing style that students actually enjoy. The seventh edition provides fresh topical examples and exercises taken from the real world, even more clear and focused explanations, and dramatically expanded online resources.

A two-part organization: The first part covers claims, the second covers arguments. Students find the distinction between unsupported and supported claims natural.
Hundreds of examples and anecdotes drawn primarily from politics, sports, high technology, entertainment, and academia.
A focus on writing throughout. Chapter 2 focuses exclusively on guidelines for writing argumentative essays.
A complete glossary of terms, answers to one-third of the 1,500 exercises included in the text, cartoons, and an informal, often tongue-in-cheek writing style.
