									Thinking Your Way to Freedom
Author: Susan T. Gardner

Edition: 1

Thinking Your Way to Freedom is a critical-thinking textbook with a difference. Rather than focusing
exclusively on improving college students’ academic achievement, Susan Gardner seeks to dramatically
change how students think through issues that are important in their lives beyond school. Gardner
created 66 original and entertaining comic strips—featuring her dogs, Diva and Ben—that add a light
touch as they encourage intellectual and personal autonomy. Through a clear step-by-step method of
practical reasoning, students are taught how to think impartially and how to neutralize invisible biases
that limit their freedom of thought and action. With the help of Diva and Ben, readers learn to evaluate the
strengths of arguments and to recognize fallacies, all the while avoiding the paralyzing effects of
relativism.Thinking Your Way to Freedom includes the writing of short essays so that students can
improve their critical thinking and writing at the same time. A Teacher’s Manual for this book will be
available online.
