Vincent Ryan Ruggiero is internationally recognized as a pioneer in the movement to make creative and critical thinking a central emphasis in education. The author of 19 books and over 75 articles, he is professor of humanities, emeritus, at SUNY-Delhi.


In an era where worksheets and standardized tests dominate our educational system, Ruggiero's book comes at a propitious time. His WISE approach is an especially valuable tool for problem-solving and decision-making. -- Tenena Soro, professor of linguistics at National-Louis University Ruggiero provides an interesting read for both faculty members, to remind us where we've been in our intellectual journeys, and students, to show them where we want them to go. This is an excellent addition for any class where developing critical thinking skills for students is a high priority. -- Lori Cox Han, associate professor of political science, Austin College Ruggiero gives us an up-to-the-minute guide to recognizing the characteristic fallacies of our time, then expertly and lucidly offers us the practical steps we can take to achieve genuine intellectual independence. Luminous examples will bring his excellent practical advice to mind exactly when you need it! -- Peter Wood, author of Diversity: The Invention of a Concept, and associate professor of anthropology at Boston University
