9780132203043: Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking

For Courses on Critical Thinking, Argumentative Writing, Informal Logic courses, as well as Student Success courses.

Asking the Right Questions is a concise, well-priced book with great examples, and it thoroughly covers critical thinking.

This highly popular text helps students bridge the gap between simply memorizing or blindly accepting information, and the greater challenge of critical analysis and synthesis. It teaches them to respond to alternative points of view and develop a solid foundation for making personal choices about what to accept and what to reject.  Perfect for freshman courses, this brief book does an amazingly thorough job covering critical thinking.

From the Back Cover:

This highly popular text helps students to bridge the gap between simply memorizing or blindly accepting information and the greater challenge of critical analysis and synthesis.  It teaches them to respond to alternative points of view and develop a solid foundation for making personal choices about what to accept and what to reject.

 

While the structure  of this new edition remains the same, for the sake of currency and relevance about two-thirds of the practice passages are new, as well as many of the longer illustrations and the final critical thinking case.  Also, this eighth edition  has been revised to emphasize the positive value of critical thinking as a means to autonomy, curiousity, reasonableness, openness, and better decisions.

About the Author:

Neil Browne lectures at bowling Green State University.
