Critical and Creative Thinking
The text provides readers with the critical and creative thinking fundamentals needed to get at the essentials of the landscape of ideas and opinions on current social issues. The selected readings have been carefully chosen for their ability to bring a wide range of perspectives and importance to the critical and creative thinking approach in the text. The new edition includes updated content and visuals, as well as new and relevant readings.
