Please help me find the critical thinking textbook my grade-school class used in the early eighties.
Here's another long-lost book question. In grade school, in Chicago between 1980 and 1984, we had a section in logic and philosophy. The text we used was called "Thinking Critically" or "Critical Thinking". It was grade-school or high-school level, and dealt mostly with logic. There were exercises and problems to solve. In the same class we did a lot of logic grid puzzles
, which may or may not have come from the book. The last chapter of the book dealt with the techniques used in advertisements (repetition, the bandwagon, etc.) The cover might have been brown, and the title was large, bold, and on a diagonal across the cover in white text, all capital letters, sans serif. It was the size of a typical workbook (9" x 11" or so), softcover, and about 100 pages.
Of course, all my memories are suspect, but I'd really like to find the book again. Inspired by this post
