‘Critical Thinking for Students’ first appeared in 1996 and has gone through four editions and eleven reprints. This is evidence of its considerable popularity over the past fifteen years. This fourth edition is completely revised and thus includes new examples, evidence, and exercises. It is based on Roy van den Brink-Budgen’s renowned approach to Critical Thinking which focuses on the nature of claims.
The book will be valuable for many different readers, including students following a course in the subject at school, college, or university. However, despite its title, it will be of considerable value to all those who wish to develop skills in the analysis, evaluation, and production of argumentation. Quite simply, it will provide the means to achieve clearer and more creative thinking.
