I have poured over about half of chapter in my critical thinking book, in the last two hours and I still don't get it, even when I reread. It is almost as if there is no possibilty to give an argument without having some sort of flaw in the conclusion. Maybe, my mind is not geared to think so logically. In the different examples (within the textbook) I think that the narrator has given a good premise with a good conclusion but as I turn the page I find that I was wrong. There is flaws in the relationship stated between the premise and the conclusion that I didn't even consider. I really am feeling a bit frustrated with the whole process and I have only been in the class one day (tomorrow is my second day). There must be an better book that can help me understand the process of creating a fool proof argument that has a conclusion that is validated. Does anyone have a suggestion, because I think if I don't get a good grasp on the information early on, I will be lost and unsucessful in the next 13 weeks of class. So if you have any ideas or books that might be benficial for me let me know.
