Critical Thinking and the Spock Fallacy.
Walters, Kerry S.
Innovative Higher Education, v15 n1 p17-28 Fall-Win 1990
Conventional instruction in critical thinking may ignore the creative and intuitive functions of rationality, thereby encouraging a mechanically rote approach to textual analysis, problem solving, and problem construction. Such an overemphasis upon logical "calculus of justification" functions has epistemological weaknesses and pedagogical hazards. (Author/DB)
