A Sociohistorical View of Reason and Emotion in Academic Debate.
Thomson, Phillip
This paper examines the potential of sociohistorical theory for the study of academic debate. The essay describes sociohistorical theory (noting that it is most often attributed to the work of Lev Vygotsky and that contemporary scholars influenced by it include Jerome Bruner and James Wertsch), the relationship between reason and emotion from a traditional and sociohistoric view, and how sociohistorical theory provides fertile ground for theorizing about debate and critical thinking. Contains 61 references. (NKA)
