Critical Reasoning: Understanding and Criticizing Arguments and Theories
Co-authored by J.B. Cederblom, UNO faculty member.
In this era of increased polarization of opinion and contentious disagreement, Critical Reasoning presents a cooperative approach to critical thinking and formation of beliefs. Critical Reasoning emphasizes the importance of developing and applying analytical skills in real life contexts. This book is unique in providing multiple, diverse examples of everyday arguments, both textual and visual, including hard to find long argument passages from real-life sources. The book provides clear, step-by-step procedures to help you decide for yourself what to believe--to be a consumer of information in our contemporary "world of experts."
