I just read a book on logic
So you’d better watch your back!
Now I’m armed with thinking critical
And ready to attack!

I can pulverize your straw man;
I can see through your smokescreen;
And to innuendo I’ll apply
Deductive reasoning.

And if you should try to toss
A sly red herring in my way,
I’ll crank out a syllogism
That’ll surely make my day.

So don’t try to argue with me
Because that would not be cool.
We’d soon know who is the smarty-pants
And who’s the sorry fool.

(I think I’ll earn a Ph.D.
By studying ph

Critical Thinking is an interesting, humorous and useful read. However, the title can be somewhat misleading – critical thinking is usually considered to be a method of thinking that questions assumptions, but also a tool to aid people in analysing the information around them, guiding them towards conclusions as far as both beliefs and actions are concerned. This book does definitely not provide a general overview of all aspects of critical thinking, but seems more focused on enabling the reader ...more

ديدگاه منطقي و بيس فلسفه ي علم براي بررسي گزاره ها كه با آوردن مثال ها و تمرين هاي متعدد كاربرد مسئله رو به روشن كرده ، و منبع بسيار مناسبي براي آغاز تفكر نقاد هست ، ترجمه ي فارسي كتاب هم توسط آقاي دكتر سلطاني انجام شده

I appreciate the effort put into being amusing and eye catching with this book. I did learn a decent amount about literary manipulation and how people purposely persuade others to believe what they want them to believe.

کتاب قشنگی بود ! شخصا به خاطر اینکه یکی از کتب منبع المپیاد علمی پزشکی بود خوندمش !! ولی واقعا میتونه روش تفکر رو به فرد بیاموزه !! هرچند اون اواسطش با آوردن فرمول ها یه خرده گیج میکرد خواننده رو !!!

Maybe it's just because as a debater I'm quite familiar with fallacies, argumentation, etc., I think this book is too general and lacks depth. I have expected much more than an textbook-style walk-through.

I was assigned to read this book for a class also titled Critical Thinking. It was a required class and the subject matter had me feeling a bit apprehensive. (I guess it was the bad memories of that Logic class I took in college years ago.)

Thankfully, the book is less daunting than I had first imagined. The writing style is accessible, and even conversational at times. The authors include real-life scenarios to illustrate their points. This helps the reader to grasp this difficult subject rather

This was one of the most useful books I read as an undergrad. Especially the chapters on how to spot others' reasoning fallacies in arguments, spoken or print. Those skills along with other critical thinking skills should be taught in grade school, yet it seems many are taught to only consume information and not think critically.

I read it because it was required for my doctorate.
