Posted March 1, 2010
Tags Katheryn Doran Philosophy
Associate Professor of Philosophy Katheryn Doran was an editor on the latest revision of William Hughes’s Critical Thinking: An Introduction to the Basic Skills. The sixth edition of the book was published in January by Broadview Press.

According to the publisher, Hughes, Doran and Jonathan Lavery “give a thorough treatment of such traditional topics as deductive and inductive reasoning, logical fallacies, the importance of inference, how to recognize and avoid ambiguity, and how to assess what is or is not relevant to an argument. In addition to covering basic concepts for analyzing and assessing arguments, the text also has two chapters that are designed to help students write argumentative essays.”
