Critical Thinking and Logic:
A Philosophical Workbook - 2nd edition
by Todd M. Furman
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

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.
