Now in its second edition, Critical Thinking and Logic: A Philosophical Workbook is an inexpensive but
comprehensive introduction. Examples and homework problems touch on philosophical issues much more
so than standard texts do, providing instructors an opportunity to ease into philosophical discussions as
desired and piquing student interest. Homework assignments are on tear-out pages for ease of use.
While Critical Thinking and Logic: A Philosophical Workbook covers standard issues of critical thinking
such as argument types and fallacies, it also provides a solid foundation for an advanced course in formal
logic. The final chapter includes a complete translation of Descartes's Meditations, allowing students to
put their newly acquired skills to work on a classic work of philosophy.

problem. His primary interests in philosophy include Hume, skepticism,
