Organ Sales and Ben and Jerry's and Corporate Philanthropy are just a couple of the truly stimulating subjects addressed in THE THINKING READER. Koobatian offers articles of varying lengths and levels of difficulty on such subjects in order to help students learn to create good arguments. Article authors include such notables as James Rachels, Joyce Carol Oates, Alan Dershowitz, Peter Singer, and William Jefferson Clinton! Study questions are written to help students recognize the key components of argument while sufficient latitude is allowed for instructors to work with their own presentations of argument analysis.
