Beskrivelse

"A flawless compendium of flaws." --Alice Roberts, PhD, anatomist, writer, and presenter of "The Incredible Human Journey"The antidote to fuzzy thinking, with furry animals Have you read (or stumbled into) one too many irrational online debates? Ali Almossawi certainly had, so he wrote "An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments" This handy guide is here to bring the internet age a much-needed dose of old-school logic (really old-school, "a la" Aristotle).Here are cogent explanations of the "straw man" fallacy, the "slippery slope" argument, the "ad hominem" attack, and other common attempts at reasoning that actually fall short--plus a beautifully drawn menagerie of animals who (adorably) commit every logical "faux pas." Rabbit thinks a strange light in the sky "must" be a UFO because no one can prove otherwise ("the appeal to ignorance"). And Lion doesn't believe that gas emissions harm the planet because, if that "were" true, he wouldn't like the result (the "argument from consequences").Once you learn to recognize these abuses of reason, they start to crop up everywhere from congressional debate to YouTube comments--which makes this geek-chic book a "must" for anyone in the habit of holding opinions.
