"MsoNormal" Anthem Guide to Critical Thinking Skills: Language and Logic' guides readers in the process of critical thinking and persuasive speaking and writing. The text discusses informal thinking, the formal processes of induction, deduction, and syllogistic reasoning, in a clear format that makes it easy for the "beginning logician" to process. Students learn how to form a proposition, identify issues, gather evidence, and process an argument. To get started, logic games, puzzles, and real life examples ask students to consider how we evaluate, analyze, and decide. What happens if Janie says, 'Mom, can I go to the party? All of my friends are going!' And Mom responds, 'What if all of your friends jumped off the empire State building?' Is 'all of my friends are going' a good reason? Does mom have a point? Language and Logic will help students evaluate these everyday decisions. Then a more formal look at induction and deduction challenges students to practice higher-level thinking skills, such as using analogies for evaluation, and working through syllogisms to process ideas. After a review of the Greek Fallacies, readers can have some literary logic fun by analyzing old standards like 'Love is a Fallacy' and the persuasive love poem 'The Passionate Shepherd'"-- Provided by publisher.

The Anthem Handbook of Screen Theory offers a unique and progressive survey of screen theory and how it can be applied to a range of moving-image texts and sociocultural contexts. Focusing on the “handbook” angle, the book includes only original essays from established authors in the field and new scholars on the cutting edge of helping screen theory evolve for the twenty-first-century vistas of new media, social shifts and geopolitical change. This method guarantees a strong foundation and clarity for the canon of film theory, while also situating it as part of a larger genealogy of art theories and critical thought, and reveals the relevance and utility of film theories and concepts to a wide array of expressive practices and specified arguments. The Anthem Handbook of Screen Theory is at once inclusive, applicable and a chance for writers to innovate and really play with where they think the field is, can and should be heading.

While the fiction of novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand is extremely popular and enduring, little has been written on it so far. This book consists of essays, most of which are new, by top Rand scholars on Atlas Shrugged, her magnum opus. The essays deal with historical, literary, and philosophical topics, surpassing related writings in breadth and depth of analysis. The historical essays cover the writing of Atlas Shrugged, its publication history, and its reception. The literary essays cover analysis of the novel's plot, theme, and characterization; comparisons with other works, such as the novels of Hugo, Dostoyevsky, and Joyce; and the proper approach to adapting Atlas Shrugged to film. The philosophical essays cover a vast range of topics, including the place of Galt's speech in the novel, the role of the mind in human life, and the evil of non-objective law. Some of the essays make use of previously unpublished material from the Ayn Rand Archives.

I AM UNSURE HOW TO BEGIN, as I have started and stopped more than I care to admit. Sometimes stopping out of fear, I have written chapters that will never see the light of day. Sometimes starting out of anger—I am frustrated by my own ramblings as rage can only take me but so far. There truly is no safe place to pour out my soul, and I once found solace in the new thoughts I could entrap somewhere between the notepad and the printed page. I cannot, and will not, promise that what follows will not again result in the incoherent, self-indulgent ramblings of an humbled-narcissist. My insecurities and anger betray me at every turn—insecurities stemming from my blackness, my Southernness, and my aloofness—anger resulting from having loved one, who cheated, the resentment fashioned from being hated by my own and even more hated by those, who disown me. I am a black Baptist from a low-income background—in the eyes of this world, I am less than nothing. My mother and father gave me all they had and did not have as I was protected by my older brother and older sister, who I love more than life. Then there is my native United States, which I love despite some ugly realities that have left me beyond jaded. I over-compensate, I over-extend, and I resentfully show compassion to the racists I despise. I have feigned the personality of the misogynists I detest, I have pretended to share the exaggerated fears of the xenophobes I dread and given silent ascent to the homophobes I pity. I am angry. I am angriest with myself. I am, in all likelihood, one of the angriest men in the history of history. And as if unto death, I offer to the world my past, my heart, my failures and my abandoned hopes without precondition. I am far too much of a coward to commit suicide (just yet) and have reached a breaking point in which I must either air my grievances with myself and this world, or finally amass the courage to exit this place. My detractors will undoubtedly say, “Then Jerry, please do us all a favor, stop whining and kill yourself already!” However, as Neil Young remains on this side of eternity, I am best off staying put for the time being. Yet, I would console my detractors my assuring them that should this work be published, I will lose my fiancé, I will lose the congregation I pastor, I will lose my house, I will lose what passes for my assets, I will lose yet another opportunity to complete my doctorate, I will lose those persons who risked so much in daring to befriend me, and short of being pronounced dead by a physician, will possess all the characteristics of a fresh corpse. I now present to anger anthem.
