The Art of Argument: An Introduction to the Informal Fallacies - Revised Edition
Take a look at a sample chapter here! (PDF)

The Art of Argument is a humorous, insightful book that will teach your children forty common informal fallacies. Amusing but spot-on explanations, droll samples, and other selections will train them to identify political and media manipulation.

Logic Taught From a Christian Perspective
The workbook format uses many updated illustrations and examples to ensure understanding. The Christian perspective ensures that none of the examples will be lewd. The Art of Argument builds and expands on what your children have learned in The Fallacy Detective and makes them accountable, via workbook pages, for the information.

Independent Study
Funny and convicting, this is a book that will yield long-ranging benefits. This is a super logic program for independent students ten and older. Workbook is 230 pages.

An optional teacher's guide is available separately
The revised Art of Argument Teacher's Edition is greatly expanded and now includes the entire student text, answers to all exercises, and new chapter and unit tests.

The Art of Argument has been revised to include:
  • Improved chapter and unit organization for greater ease of use
  • Fallacy explanations rewritten for clarity
  • Many added and updated examples
  • Ten new and revised advertisement illustrations

  • Students master 40 fallacies (such as begging the question, the straw man, ad hominen, et al) by studying many pertinent examples. The text features a variety of:

  • Dialogues
  • Worksheets
  • Real-World Applications
  • Phony Advertisements
  • Dialectic Discussion Questions
  • Tests
  • Fun extras such as a humorous skit for students to perform, and the famous short story, Love is a Fallacy by Max Shulman

    Interesting and Relevant October 10, 2011
    Reviewer: Virginia Morgan from Greenville, IL United States  
    We enjoy learning informal logic together, and we thought that The Fallacy Detective and The Thinking Toolbox were the best...until we found The Art of Argument. It is interactive, and keeps students paying attention to the world around them, especially to media. We went with Timberdoodle's suggestion and combined all three books into a course we simply call "Logic." But this one is our favorite. We especially loved the dialogues with Socrates!
