Asking the right questions: a guide to critical thinking
This popular book helps readers understand the difference between blindly accepting information and critical analysis and synthesis. It teaches how to react rationally to alternate points of view and develop a foundation for making personal choices about what to accept and what to reject in what we see and hear. Focusing on the question-asking skills and techniques necessary for evaluating different types of evidence, this book addresses critical thinking as a generic skill with many applications while emphasizing values and moral reasoning as an integral part of critical thinking. It provides extensive treatment of evidence while analyzing the biases that hinder critical thinking. It includes a chapter-length illustration of the system of "right" questions. The fifth edition of "Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking" has been revised to be more readable and clear. It provides highlighted definitions and illustrations that provide a more lively format that clarifies complex or significant points. In addition, Caution Boxes warn readers of common misunderstandings that interfere with the effective use of an idea or skill. An essential resource for every reader who wishes greater clarity in what we see and hear every day.
