Transforming critical thinking : thinking constructively

Author: Barbara J Thayer-Bacon
Publisher: New York : Teachers College Press, ©2000.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Thayer-Bacon argues that factors such as race, gender, and social status have direct bearing on philosophical inquiry: by abstracting theorists from their personal and social contexts, the absolutism of traditional critical thinking philosophies come into question. Thayer-Bacon encourages reevaluating the diversity of inquiry and suggests that diversity is a factor which constructs philosophy.
