A Workbook for Arguments builds on Anthony Weston’s A Rulebook for Arguments to provide a complete textbook for a course in critical thinking or informal logic. The second edition adds:
  • Updated and improved homework exercises—nearly one third are new—to ensure that the examples continue to resonate with students.
  • Increased coverage of scientific reasoning, demonstrating how scientific reasoning dovetails with critical thinking more generally.
  • Two new activities in which students analyze arguments in their original form, as provided in brief selections from the original texts.

This edition continues to include:

  • The entire text of Rulebook, supplemented with extensive explanations and exercises.
  • Homework exercises adapted from a wide range of arguments in a wide variety of sources.
  • Practical advice to help students succeed.
  • Model answers to odd-numbered problems, including commentaries on the strengths and weaknesses of selected sample answers and further discussion of some of the substantive  intellectual, philosophical, or ethical issues they raise.
  • Detailed instructions for in-class activities and take-home assignments.
  • An appendix on mapping arguments, giving students a solid introduction to this vital skill in constructing complex and multi-step arguments and evaluating them.
