Critical thinking: consider the verdict
Critical Thinking: Consider the Verdict shows students how to take critical thinking skills from the jury room and apply them in the voting booth and the citizens' forum, and from the shopping mall to the boardroom. This new Third Edition of Critical Thinking: Consider the Verdict has been enlivened and updated with a wealth of fascinating new exercises from recent trials and Supreme Court decisions, from political campaigns and social debates. In addition, there is a new section on distinguishing legitimate from fallacious appeals to authority, expanded discussion of the proper role and function of the jury, and extensive new exercises on arguments from analogy.
