Now available with CourseMate so students can complete the exercises online, Trudy Govier's THE PRACTICAL STUDY OF ARGUMENT gives students an accessible and yet rigorous introduction to sound argumentation. Presenting just enough theory to explain why certain kinds of arguments are sound or not, then bringing this theory to life through everyday illustrations and examples, the text provides students with a comprehensive introduction to critical thinking along with a synthesis of formal and informal approaches to logic.
