It is a question as old as man: how do I get others to do what I want? How do I bend the will of the people around me to the point where it is more in line with my deepest hopes and desires? And most importantly, how do I do it in such a way that no one is even aware I've done anything at all? Human psychology, empathy, perception, common sense, secrecy and graft: these are the topics that author Daniel Smith will discuss in his book on persuasion, in which he seeks to answer these and other age old questions about influencing and persuading others. In his book entitled Banned Methods of Persuasion, the author provides an in depth guide to the many techniques and methods for becoming the grey eminence you were always meant to be.

Some of the information found within may be hard to handle- controversial even, but with detailed study of our time-honored methods, even the shiest and most withdrawn person may find themselves in an increasingly powerful social position. Knowledge awaits!

"William Hughes's Critical Thinking, recently revised and updated by Jonathan Lavery, is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the essential skills required to make strong arguments. Hughes and Lavery give a thorough treatment of such traditional topics as deductive and inductive reasoning, logical fallacies and how to spot them, the importance of inference, how to recognise and avoid ambiguity, and how to assess what is or is not relevant to an argument. But they also cover a variety of topics not always treated in books of this sort - special concerns to keep in mind when reasoning about ethical matters and how the nature of a language can affect the structure of an argument. The book gives a lucid treatment of the differences between descriptive and evaluative meaning: one person's freedom fighter is another person's terrorist." "For the fourth edition, Jonathan Lavery has added a new chapter on scientific reasoning, expanded the treatment of analogies, added numerous examples, and revised and updated the text throughout."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Some Ethical Problems Of Modern Advertising

The present thesis is intended to be a modest introduction to selected ethical problems of modern American advertising, and of consumer advertising in particular. It is in no sense either a complete or a definitive treatment of the ethics of advertising. In the first place, the ethical problems of advertising are at once too numerous and too complex to be treated in a single work. In the second place, the subject is, as we shall see, too undeveloped to permit of anything but a preliminary attempt to clarify problems and to develop some of the principles necessary for their solution. Consequently, this thesis is largely exploratory, that is, an attempt to stake out certain areas and to locate them with reference to the norms of sound ethics. We have chosen to study the ethical problems of American advertising for three reasons. First, advertising has had its greatest development in that country. Secondly, the literature bearing on the ethical and social implications of advertising, though not particularly abundant, gives more attention to the American problems than to those of other nations. Thirdly, the present work is intended to be a guide for those members of the American advertising profession who encouraged this undertaking.
