Featuring its own cast of illustrated characters, a personal and accessible tone, and carefully crafted step-by-step units, Epstein's CRITICAL THINKING sets new standards of clarity for presenting the subject matter. Extensively classroom tested, the text uses over one thousand everyday examples and exercises to illuminate key points and ideas. It is the only text on critical thinking in which students work with illustrations to convert the non-verbal into arguments and arrive at conceptual understanding. It is also the only text-workbook-instructor's manual system designed and constructed by one author to provide the most fully integrated learning and teaching system available.
