Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Other than emotion, perhaps the most important topic on the planet is personal opinion, yet very little is written not only about the positive and scientific aspects of how opinions vary, but certainly nearly nothing about the essence of faulty reasoning that underlies many opinions, including those of professionals.

Since cognition, and certainly neural fields, are evolving toward the evaluation of thought as dynamical systems with ordinary and partial differential equations, the time may be coming when we look at opinions and arguments algorithmically as well, considering them neural parametric weights, and investigating the underlying functions.

The previous edition of this text created an entirely new field of evaluating logical fallacies not only via the underlying and often subtle logical traps, but also from a "30,000" foot view of what I'd call tabular taxonomy weighting-- using pre algorithmic and functional classifications that could readily become algorithmic weight regressions for "species" of error. There are many positive texts written about clarity in research, but this is still the one and only "backing toward your goal" text that covers the diagnosis of weakness indicators. When applied to our own work, it's now the gold standard for honing the evidence and logic behind our findings, observations and opinions.

This new edition is not just window dressing to give it a 2013 "feel." The authors have taken the recent feedback and research and further refined their unique "system" of fault diagnosis to include many new shades of fallacy they missed or didn't explore as deeply in the last edition.

On my third reading and am sharing it with our Socrates Cafe group. It is well written, easy to understand and bring your highlight markers, you will want them. I almost didn't purchase this book for the price is way too high for an average reader. I wanted our group to each get one but that fell flat. It is to bad that this author can't get one out for the general public that is in an appropriate purchase range.

Great text book. Easy to read and comprehend. The book has a lot of examples and a easy to use glossery by terms in the back of the book. Loved it.
