To Encourage Reason on the Campus: A Proposal for a New College Course in Thinking and Writing.
Tibbetts, A.M.
AAUP Bulletin, v54 n4 p466-472 Dec 1968
Two examples of student prose are analysed as instances of the unreasoned, illogical thinking which the author considers prevalent at the university level today. Causes for student inability to communicate by means of objective argument are explored, and a course, "Investigation, Thinking, and Arguing," is outlined as a suggested replacement for freshman composition.
