Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his preface Mr Wilson writes ‘I feel that a great many adults ...would do better to spend less time in simply accepting the concepts of others uncritically, and more time in learning how to analyse concepts in general’. Mr Wilson starts by describing the techniques of conceptual analysis. He then gives examples of them in action by composing answers to specific questions and by criticism of quoted passages of argument. Chapter 3 sums up the importance of this kind of mental activity. Chapter 4 presents selections for the reader to analyse, followed by questions of university entrance/scholarship type. This is a book to be worked through, in a sense a text-book.

Synopsis:

Conceptual analysis as a specialized subject in its own right, which can be easily taught and learned.
