THINK Critically, Chapter 9 Warranted Inferences

This chapter covers how we evaluate the logical strength of inferences offered as if their conclusions are probably true but not necessarily true. How can we recognize fallacies masquerading as warranted inferences?

What people are saying:

“Exercises give readers something substantial to think about, not just another set of boring drills that do not really test the application of skills in real-life critical thinking.”

“This book breaks the mold of traditional critical thinking pedagogy.” I recommend it for any course explicitly is billed as introduction to critical thinking. … This textbook satisfies criteria that any quality critical thinking textbook should meet, but that many other textbooks fail to live up to.”
