Education's Epistemology

Rationality, Diversity, and Critical Thinking

Harvey Siegel

  • Offers a careful, detailed and philosophically informed account of critical thinking, an expression used often but rarely clarified
  • Defends the status of critical thinking as a fundamental educational ideal
  • Connects that ideal to basic issues in epistemology, especially that of epistemic rationality, and sketches a non-instrumental account of the latter
