Adorable Fallacies

In The Amazing Dr. Ransom’s Bestiary of Adorable Fallacies, Doug Wilson and son N.D. have given us a comprehensive book that makes learning about informal fallacies a hoot! To the familiar fallacies of ad hominem, circular reasoning, equivocation and their ilk, they have added a section on millennial fallacies with which we sorely need to be familiar: cool-shame, milquetoastery, ad imperium, pomo relativism, sensitivity shamming, and more!

In our day of muddled thinking, this guide to fifty popular ways to reason poorly is must read for anyone who recognizes the need for a field guide to thinking clearly!

Another helpful book for our times from Canon Press.
