With a complete, approachable presentation, CRITICAL THINKING: THE ART OF ARGUMENT, 2nd Edition, is an accessible yet rigorous introduction to critical thinking. The text emphasizes immediate application of critical thinking in everyday life and helps students apply the skills they are studying. The relevance of these skills is shown throughout the text by highlighting the advantages of basing one's decisions on a thoughtful understanding of arguments and presenting the overarching commonalities across arguments. With its conversational writing style and carefully selected examples, the book employs a consistent and unified treatment of logical form and an innovative semiformal method of standardizing arguments that illustrates the concept of logical form while maintaining a visible connection to ordinary speech. Without sacrificing accuracy or detail, the authors clearly present the material, with appropriate study tools and exercises that emphasize application rather than memorization.

CRITICAL THINKING: A USER’S MANUAL offers an innovative skill-based approach to critical thinking that provides step-by-step tools for learning to evaluate arguments. Students build a complete skill set by recognizing, analyzing, diagramming, and evaluating arguments; later chapters encourage application of the basic skills to categorical, truth-functional, analogical, generalization, and causal arguments as well as fallacies. The exercises throughout the text engage readers in active learning, integrate writing as part of the critical thinking process, and emphasize skill transference. A special feature, called Your Turn! encourages students to not just skim through the book’s explanations, but stop, think, and apply what they are learning. CRITICAL THINKING: A USER’S MANUAL offers multiple opportunities for different kinds of practice and options for appealing to different learning styles. The quantity and variety of exercises allow for group work, reflection and application, and writing practice as well as traditional homework exercises. Aplia, an online homework solution that increases student effort and engagement, is available as an option with this text to provide additional critical thinking practice with immediate feedback to reinforce the skills students are building in class.

»Das ›1984‹ fürs Internetzeitalter« Zeit online - jetzt als E-Book für nur 9,99€ Leben in der schönen neuen Welt des total transparenten Internets: Mit Der Circle hat Dave Eggers einen hellsichtigen, hochspannenden Roman über die Abgründe des gegenwärtigen Vernetzungswahns geschrieben. Ein beklemmender Pageturner, der weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Huxleys Schöne neue Welt reloaded: Die 24-jährige Mae Holland ist überglücklich. Sie hat einen Job ergattert in der hippsten Firma der Welt, beim »Circle«, einem freundlichen Internetkonzern mit Sitz in Kalifornien, der die Geschäftsfelder von Google, Apple, Facebook und Twitter geschluckt hat, indem er alle Kunden mit einer einzigen Internetidentität ausstattet, über die einfach alles abgewickelt werden kann. Mit dem Wegfall der Anonymität im Netz – so ein Ziel der »drei Weisen«, die den Konzern leiten – wird es keinen Schmutz mehr geben im Internet und auch keine Kriminalität. Mae stürzt sich voller Begeisterung in diese schöne neue Welt mit ihren lichtdurchfluteten Büros und High-Class-Restaurants, wo Sterneköche kostenlose Mahlzeiten für die Mitarbeiter kreieren, wo internationale Popstars Gratis-Konzerte geben und fast jeden Abend coole Partys gefeiert werden. Sie wird zur Vorzeigemitarbeiterin und treibt den Wahn, alles müsse transparent sein, auf die Spitze. Doch eine Begegnung mit einem mysteriösen Kollegen ändert alles ...Mit seinem neuen Roman Der Circle hat Dave Eggers ein packendes Buch über eine bestürzend nahe Zukunft geschrieben, einen Thriller, der uns ganz neu über die Bedeutung von Privatsphäre, Demokratie und Öffentlichkeit nachdenken und den Wunsch aufkommen lässt, die Welt und das Netz mögen uns bitte manchmal vergessen. »Ein brandaktueller Roman über unsere Gegenwart – wunderbar« FAZ »Eggers futuristischer Silicon-Valley-Horror ist kein Orwell’sches 2084, sondern eine der Wirklichkeit nur wenig vorauseilende, im Grunde ziemlich realistisch anmutende Vision.« NZZ

The Structure of Argument covers critical thinking, reading, writing, and research. Concise but thorough, it includes questions, exercises, writing assignments, and a full semester’s worth of readings—everything students need in an affordable, compact format. Presenting Aristotelian and Rogerian as well as Toulmin argument, The Structure of Argument has been totally revised, with more than three-quarters of the readings new (including many multimodal selections available online at no extra charge), new coverage of multimodal argument, expanded treatment of key rhetorical concepts, a fresh new design, and additional support for research. Its emphasis on Toulmin argument makes Structure highly teachable, since the approach fits with the goals of the composition course.
