Cover of An Introduction to Critical Thinking and Creativity: Think More, Think Better

Note

One way to evaluate arguments and reach a conclusion is through the concept of causation. Causation helps you understand the world you live in and make accurate predictions about the future. Causation is not a simple concept to apply and may lead you to erroneous conclusions. This selection discusses causation, when it is a valid concept to apply to an argument, and how to model causation to better understand the argument and reach a conclusion. The second part of this selection introduces you to causal networks, fishbone diagrams, and flowcharts.
