Critical Thinking: A Verbal Dispute?
Flage, Daniel E.
Inquiry: Critical Thinking across the Disciplines, v20 n4 p13-18 Sum 2001
Considers how a dispute arose among philosophers and rhetoricians at a university regarding what counts as critical thinking and who is "really" teaching it. Shows the dispute was verbal, since each side assigned different meanings to the key terms "argument" and "truth." Argues cases in which verbal disputes regarding central terms in the discourse reflect essential differences in a discipline. (SG)
