The Fallacy Detective – Review and Giveaway

Thanks for checking out my review of The Fallacy Detective!  Below you will find a free download of a study guide, and an opportunity to enter to win a copy of the book!

 

The Fallacy DetectiveDo you ever feel lost in the empty but poetic words of a politician?
Do your children argue with you regularly?
Do you ever wish you could read or watch the news with more understanding of the biases of the reporters?

I am so excited to share my thoughts about a fantastic book called, The Fallacy Detective. If you are planning on studying rhetoric, logic, or current events, or just want you kids (or yourself!) to recognize bad reasoning and fallacies in the media, then this book is a great one for you to pick up. It is also a quick study for students who struggle with these subjects as well, as a remediation of the terms and concepts.

The Fallacy Detective: Thirty-Eight Lessons on How To Recognize Bad Reasoning, by Nathaniel Bluedorn and Hans Bluedorn, is a chapter book of brief yet meaningful lessons on many different fallacies, such as The Red Herring, Generalizations, Ad Hominem and Propaganda. The lessons are usually about 3 pages long, filled with illustrations, examples and stories to drive the point home. Each lesson is then followed by a series of thought-provoking exercises that will encourage discussion and thinking.

“Are fallacies important to understand?” you ask? YES! They are important for all of us, because they are constantly used in the worlds of politics, new reporting, advertising, and media to convince us of how to cast our votes, to believe faulty reasoning, and get us to spend our money. Discernment and wisdom come from knowing the truth and recognizing a lie.

The authors have beautifully simplified a topic that most parents would struggle to explain to their children in their own words. They’ve done the difficult work, and done it well. I feel most lessons can be done 2 at a time, making this a quick study for families with older and intermediate children. While 12 years and up might get the most from this book, certainly, younger children will benefit from hearing the stories and being in on the discussion.

To take a peak, please visit The Fallacy Detective websiteThe company also offers 35% off of group orders for schools and homeschool co-ops, and the website lists online retailers who sell the book.

Fallacy_Detective_Free_DownloadBecause I know you can’t wait to dive in, I’m making it super easy for you!

    We all need to be equipped (ready) to give an answer to defend our faith, value and belief system, and to do so in a rock-solid way. Being able to understand the art of persuasion, building an argument, and identifying fallacies is so important in this world of false teachings, relativism, and anecdotal “facts.” I believe this book and study guide would be great tools for providing the groundwork for facilitating the development of those skills.

    I’m excited my girls will study Logic. I”ll have a Chal A’er and a B’er this year, so it’ll be a great year. I’m thrilled that they’ll both learn how to *think* about what they’re learning about. The ability to think logically will give them a huge advantage in this world where not even common sense is “common” these days!

We are excited and nervous all at the same time but I am so on board with the classical model of education and see the deep and lasting value in teaching out children to THINK logically for themselves and be able to defend and explain their faith in all situations.

    I’m mixed on this. The logical fallacies I definately think should be taught…this will help kids navigate this very commercial world. But there is a part of logic I sort of hope to avoid as well. I do not like that logic tries to take the complex and subtle spoken word and turn it into math.

    Logic is critical to our teens learning to evaluate options in life, from philosophies they will take as foundational to their life values and choices, to being able to make wise decisions with choices they are faced with on a daily basis.

    Logic helps train in careful thinking so that kids know what to do with all the information they are bombarded with in and out of the academic setting. I taught freshman English in college a few years and always started an academic writing course with a discussion of fallacies and logic because it is so important to clear and directed rhetoric.

    Thank you for this giveaway. I’ve often thought about Fallacy Detectives (with my older boys when they were younger) but never did. Now perhaps with the teen girls it’s time. We don’t watch tv at the moment, but I know they are bombarded with media/current events. And sometimes big brother commentary lol. It’s a necessary thing for them to understand logic and reasoning, critical thinking.

      You are right – it is important for so many things!

    My husband teaches at the college level and it is sad how many students cannot draw logical conclusions and write about their opinions in essays. I want my kids to be able to clearly articulate their views and to be able to defend their beliefs logically. So, yes, I think teaching logic is very important. I’m actually very excited to work through logic curriculum alongside them!

      I’m looking forward to the same thing! This year I’m teaching formal logic, so to have an intro that’s a bit more relaxed and easy is so helpful – to get some of the concepts and vocab down before we dive into the big stuff :)

    I’d love to have this! I found the second book by the Bluedorn’s at a book sale but haven’t used it yet. I think logic is very important for children to help them learn how to thing through problems and defend their faith.

      Oh! The reasoning book? I want to go through that one with my daughter next summer. I haven’t seen it but I’m sure it’s just as useful as this one is :)

    Logic is a necessity of life; this looks like a great way to teach it formally

    Learning logic and how to think logically is important so that we can think for ourselves and determine when something we hear or are told is makes sense or is true.

      YES! I think our kids are really struggling with this. It’s a major struggle of this generation.

    Logic is very important and needs to be taught now more than ever. People have lost the ability to think for themselves and are blindly following along.

      I totally agree. I’m not sure why it seems so prevalent now, but it is true – our culture has few leaders. Teaching our kids to understand and reason great thoughts, and see through the fallacies in the media will be a powerful tool as they grow up.

    If our children study logic, they will be better equipped to discern truth from lies, and they will be less easily manipulated. Thanks for posting the study guide!

      I wholeheartedly agree. I wonder if the demise of our freedoms, government and even education are a product of our inability to realize that we are being manipulated, or just societies inability to use foresight and reasoning when making decisions. Thanks for entering and dropping by. I’d love for you to share the contest on your facebook wall :)

    Would love to have this…checked it out at the library, but wasn’t able to hold onto it long enough to go through each chapter. Critical thinking is essential! Thanks!

    Logic is important because our kids need to learn to think and reason and so many people grow up without knowing how. Thanks for the study guide!
