Govier, a Canadian philosopher and lecturer, explains the uses of good arguments, and provides the theoretical base for determining which arguments are good, and which are bad. She describes inductively strong and deductively valid arguments, as well as analogies and fallacies, supported with numerous examples and exercises. The sixth edition expands the discussion of internet sources, explores the significance of the failure to find WMDs in Iraq, and provides five new essays for analysis in the appendix.
