History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (1):97-99 (2021)

In modern socio-economic conditions, one of the priority areas of higher education is the training of a competent specialist with a high culture of thinking, capable of independently making responsible and professional decisions, and acting creatively in non-standard situations. Haber argues that critical thinking (hereafter – CT) is an indispensable skill to achieve this goal; moreover, current global burning issues point out that ‘acquiring and applying this skill is vital to our survival as a society’ (xiii). So, Haber presents his book as a guide for educators, students, as well as for everyone who wants to reinforce his reasoning abilities (xviii). However, taking into account that in recent decades, hundreds of valuable textbooks, guidelines were written on CT, one may ask how Haber is going to avoid his book from being sunk in the ocean of this literature, and what kind of characteristics make it special from other books on this topic.
