Book Description
The highly-anticipated second Canadian edition of The Power of Critical Thinking is a comprehensive, engaging introduction to the skills of scientific and moral reasoning, logic, and argumentative essay-writing. Starting with a look at the basic concepts required to think critically, the text explores such compelling topics as how to assess the credibility of a website, why it's important to be wary of advertising, and how psychological and social factors such as bias, habit, tradition, emotion, and philosophical outlook impede clear thinking.
