Phelan, Anne M.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v 20 n1 p41-55 Jan 2001
Explores the notion of practical wisdom as an alternative to current formulations of critical thinking. Concludes that practical wisdom, unlike critical thinking, allows one to address uncertainty and ambiguity, and recognize that thinking is much more than an intellectual cognitive act of an individual.
