Reading Groups and Thinking Clearly

Check out the reading Group page for date first meeting.

Thinking Clearly
Two or three years ago at a time when I was involved in some other reading groups, I picked up a book at the Co-op Bookshop called

Thinking Clearly A guide to Critical Reasoning by Jill LeBlanc. pub. WW Norton.

Its highly recommended for honing your thinking skills and capacity to make distinctions. Very helpful in the discussion of the diverse and sometimes difficult material in readings you choose for the group. It is also an aid for when you are writing. It is not specifically aimed at the arts but is general enough to be of use to students (and others) of any discipline.

There is an on-line site http://www.wwnorton.com/lemur/ which doesn’t include the full text but has enjoyable (truly) exercises from all the chapters. The format of questions with accessible answers and straightforward explanations is easy to use.
