About the Book

You've Got to Be Kidding!: How Jokes Can Help You Think is a thoughtful and accessible analysis of the ways in which jokes illustrate how we think critically, and how the thinking process goes awry in everyday human situations.

  • Uses jokes to illustrate the various mistakes or fallacies that are typically identified and discussed in courses on critical reasoning
  • Provides an effective way to learn critical thinking skills since jokes often describe real-life situations where it really matters whether a person thinks well or not
  • Demonstrates how philosophy is actually very practical and clearly related to real- life human experiences
  • Explains how developing good reasoning habits can make a real difference in all aspects of one's life
