The Art of Argument – Student Edition (Revised)

By: Joelle Hodge, Dr. Christopher Perrin, MDiv, PhD, Aaron Larsen, DA


The newly revised Art of Argument is a richer, fuller, more naturally flowing text that fosters wonder, delight, and virtue as students learn to detect fallacious arguments in their own academic work, in the arguments of others, and in modern culture.

Product Description


The Art of Argument – Revised Student Edition teaches students how to reason with clarity, relevance, and purpose through the study of 28 logical fallacies. It includes fresh examples, enhanced explanations, and a refreshed design.

All of the best features of the award-winning first edition are preserved, and we have incorporated more comprehensive instruction about how to detect and avoid each of the 28 fallacies covered in the book.

Updated fallacy examples for today’s students and several new dialogues with everyone’s favorite philosopher, Socrates, have been added as well. This edition also includes taxonomic fallacy trees to give students and teachers helpful visual guides as they seek to understand the commonalities and differences between the fallacies.

One of the most important additions in this revision is a more explicit call for students and teachers to be truth seekers who approach debate, disagreement, and argument from a point of humility by seeking what is true without being distracted by the desire to be right. We have provided opportunities for students to practice the virtue of prudence as they build the tools necessary to learn how to reason well.
