We are excited about our upcoming book, titled, “Make Your Reasoning Logically Flawless Every Time, the simple fail-safe reasoning template for any real-world logical argument,” by Joseph A. Laronge and Vanessa A. Areli.
We teach anyone, regardless of previous learning or experience, how to string together evidence or facts to reach your conclusion (e.g., claim, hypothesis, position, belief) with the only universal fail-safe reasoning template that flawlessly connects your reasoning logically to your conclusion every time. Any illogical reasoning simply cannot fit within the template. This template has been tested successfully in trial and appellate court cases for years and passed peer-review in Oxford Journal academic journals.
Importantly, this reasoning template can make the correctness or flawless nature of the logic of your real-world reasoning easily self-evident to your audience regardless of the subject matter or complexity of your argument or your audience’s skills. You or your audience will never again rely upon reasoning that is logically flawed or wonder if it is logical.
And we teach you how to also translate that logically perfect reasoning into a user-friendly argument map or diagram that makes the logic of your argument visually obvious to your audience.
Certainly, forming arguments that are logically flawless does not ensure that the conclusion is true to any degree of certainty. There are many areas where uncertainty can reside in logically perfect arguments. For example, to name just one, premises and supporting assumptions can be false or uncertain to some degree, Many of the areas of uncertainty areas are addressed in the broader category of Critical Thinking. Forming logical arguments from evidence or facts is part of Analytical Thinking, but that is only one subset of the broader category of Critical Thinking.
Critical Thinking is much more than constructing robust and rigorous logically flawless arguments using properly structured forms that connect the dots (i.e, premises) in your path of logical reasoning. Elements and strategies such as (1) looking for disconfirming evidence, (2) asking whether I have researched and investigated enough given the nature of the issue, (3) staying aware of and avoiding all conceptual and cognitive biases, (4) analyzing competing hypotheses, and (5) reaching your conclusion at the end, not the beginning, of the Critical Thinking process are essential to proper Critical Thinking tradecraft, These elements and strategies, and many others, are part of the broader Critical Thinking toolbox outside of just Analytical Thinking.
But, (1) if your reasoning is not rigorously and flawlessly logical, and (2) your logic is not self-evident to your audience, your argument will fail under critical scrutiny regardless of how well you addressed the many other aspects of Critical Thinking. Our universal reasoning template provides the fail-safe method that brings success in those two critical linchpins of a persuasive sound argument.
