Description - Arguing Well by John Shand

Argument is the primary way of discovering the truth and thinking freely for ourselves. But just knowing how to reason well is not enough to ensure that we do so, because often factors seduce us away from reasoning well or at all. This text provides an introduction to the nature of good reasoning, how to test and construct good arguments. It assumes no prior knowledge of logic or philosophy. The book includes an accessible introduction to basic symbolic logic, and goes on to introduce and explain: the nature and importance of arguments; what to look for in deciding whether arguments succeed or fail; how to construct good arguments; and how to make it more certain that we reason when we should. The book aims to be of interest to students embarking on academic study where arguments are what matter.
