  • Title:
    Crimes against logic : exposing the bogus arguments of politicians, priests, journalists, and other serial offenders
  • Author: Jamie Whyte
  • Jamie Whyte
  • Description: The right to your opinion -- Motives -- Authority -- Prejudice in fancy dress -- Shut up! -- Empty words -- Inconsistency -- Equivocation -- Begging the question -- Coincidence -- Shocking statistics -- Morality fever.
    Here's a fast-paced, ruthlessly funny romp through the mulligan stew of illogic, unreason, and just plain drivel served up daily in the media by pundits, psychics, ad agencies, New Age gurus, statisticians, free trade ideologues, business "thinkers," and, of course, politicians. Award-winning young philosopher Jamie Whyte applies his laser-like wit to dozens of timely examples in order to deconstruct the rhetoric and cut through the haze of shibboleth and doubletalk to get at the real issues. -- Publisher description.
