The predominant strategy of this text is to move from the simple to the complex. It includes topics such as categorical and sentential logic, informal fallacies, inductive logic, and extended arguments. With a non-technical approach, this book leads students step-by-step through simple demonstrations and then on to more complex material as their comfort level increases. Well designed examples, sample problems, explanatory charts and diagrams, and exercises abound.

Robert M. Johnson received a Ph. He also serves as a medical ethicist for Rutland Regional Medical Center and is a private pilot with instrument rating.
