From Critical Thinking to Argument is a very brief but thorough guide to critical thinking and argumentation. With only a dozen readings, this affordable guide can stand alone or complement an anthology. Comprising the text portion of the widely adopted Current Issues and Enduring Questions, it draws on the authors’ dual expertise in effective persuasive writing and comprehensive rhetorical strategies to help students move from critical thinking to argumentative and researched writing. Treatment of classic and modern approaches includes Aristotle, Toulmin, and Rogerian argument, making it a versatile text. From Critical Thinking to Argument has been revised to model more strategies for creating academic arguments and provide practical advice on how to develop them.
