In 2017, Baker Academic published Introducing Logic and Critical Thinking: The Skills of Reasoning and the Virtues of Inquiry by T. Ryan Byerly. T. Ryan Byerly is lecturer in philosophy of religion at the University of Sheffield in Sheffield, England.

From the publisher’s description of Introducing Logic and Critical Thinking: 

This robust, clear, and well-researched textbook for classes in logic introduces students to both formal logic and to the virtues of intellectual inquiry. Part 1 challenges students to develop the analytical skills of deductive and inductive reasoning, showing them how to identify and evaluate arguments. Part 2 helps students develop the intellectual virtues of the wise inquirer. The book includes helpful pedagogical features such as practice exercises and a concluding summary with definitions of key concepts for each chapter. Resources for professors and students are available through Baker Academic’s Textbook eSources.
