Have you read (or found) too many irrational debates onlineAli Almossawi certainly had it, so he wrote An Illustrated Book of Bad ArgumentsThis practical guide is there to bring from the age of the Internet a much needed dose of the old school of logic (really old-school, in the style of Aristotle)Here cogent the explanations of the straw man of falsehood, the argument of slippery slope, the attack ad hominem, and other communes, attempts at reasoning that the fall runs, plus a beautifully drawn animal menagerie that (adorably) engage every logical faux pasRabbit thinks that a strange light in the sky must be a UFO because no one can prove otherwise (the call to ignorance)And the Lion does not believe that the gas emissions to harm the planet, because, if that were true, he did not like the result (the argument of consequences)Once you learn to recognize these abuses of reason, they begin to occur everywhere, from parliamentary debate to YouTube comments – which makes this geek-chic a must reserve for anyone who used to hold opinionsIt’s the antidote to fuzzy thinking, with furry animals
