The Nature of Critical Thinking. Report from the Concepts in Verbal Argument Project. Theoretical Paper No. 20.
Allen, R.R.; Rott, Robert K.
Although critical thinking is a pervasive educational objective, it remains inconsistently and imperfectly defined. The present paper attempts to sort out direct attempts at defining critical thinking. Such definitions are classified as representing one of three differing points of view: critical thinking as evaluation, critical thinking as problem solving, and critical thinking as a pluralistic act.
