Critical Thinking, Logicism, and the Eclipse of Imagining.
Walters, Kerry S.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v26 n2 p130-44 1992
This paper argues that emphasis on conventional critical thinking ("logicism") skills neglects nonlogical, imaginative ways of knowing and suggests that imagination is a necessary condition for good thinking. Education in thinking skills should encourage both imaginative thinking and logical analysis. (DB)
