Originally published as "The Duck that Won the Lottery", this companion volume to "The Pig That Wants To Be Eaten" provides another rapid-fire selection of short, stimulating and entertaining capsules of philosophy. This time the focus is on the bad argumentative moves people use all the time, in politics, the media and everyday life. Each entry will be around 700 words and will take as its starting point an example of questionable reasoning from the media or literature. As with "The Pig", the aim is to give readers something to chew on and work through for themselves.

I enjoy reading this book exchanging the idea with the members of reading class as it is chosen by the teacher. This book responds me to many questions I have when I meet believes that seem confused.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What Spins The World 14. November 2010
Von Hande Z - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a book that exposes fallacies in arguments - using actual statements by prominent persons as examples. The book is made up of 100 chapters with 99 examples each making a short chapter; the 100th chapter is not an example but a summary and last word. Bagginni's first chapter examines the statement by a NASA astronaut, Eugene Cernan who was reported as having stated: "No one in their right mind can look in the stars and the eternal blackness everywhere and deny the spirituality of the experience, and the existence of a Supernatural Being." Calling it an "argument from incredulity" Baggini explains why this statement "manages to pack three dubious, but persuasive, punches." This is a book that will help develop clear thinking, but as the author warned, some of his arguments might deserve the same flaws he sees in those he analysed. In mitigation, he explains that a player might commit infringements that he might have called "foul" had the player been the referee instead. This is a fine, readable book partly because it carries mostly contemporary examples although there are some historical ones such as one made by Samuel Johnson (chapter 22). The examples spread over many subjects, from politics to religion, to science, philosophy and literary criticism.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Critical thinking to combat faulty reasoning, spin and tricksy arguments 30. Dezember 2010
Von Simon Laub - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Faulty reasoning, spin and tricksy arguments are used around us all the time. Listing some 100 examples, Julian Bagginis book gives us some much needed tools to cut through some of the rhetorical tricks used to influence our thoughts.
And it is good to reminded that people do try to flatter us, appeal to our sense of loyalty, use quantity over quality in arguments etc. etc. - all for the purpose of winning us over.

Still, with so much media spin and rhetorical nonsense going on, the book should have been even more razor sharp. Indeed, imagine how much society could benefit from a more qualified debate!

1.0 von 5 Sternen From his inaccurate criticism of my work, I assume he's slagged off 'Hamlet' because Danes don't speak English. 4. September 2014
Von AmazonCustomer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Only just heard of this guy, and been told this book slags off some of my own work - four years after his publication so he clearly hasn't made any waves. My project was fun (and serious, it's possible to be both as the public well understands) and was still being written about in the Times Lit recently, I first did it in 2002 and was happy to be cheerfully mocked by the media, interviewed live on Today on Radio 4, and copied by many. The part on my work in this book is poorly researched, lazy, inaccurate and shows ignorance of poetry, metaphor, and indeed the facts of the project including my own qualifications in the subjects involved. If the rest of it is similarly cobbled together, then he must indeed think the public are stupid. It's pretty easy to list a load of books or art works and slag them off while making money out of others' original works. From his criticism of my piece Quantum Sheep, I assume he's slagged off Hamlet because Danes don't speak English.
