Helping to Undo the Past: Teaching Critical Reasoning in South Africa

Informal Logic 18 (1):57-82 (1996)
Stephen De Wijze
University of Manchester
In this paper I discuss the opportunities and difficulties of teaching critical reasoning in a rapidly transforming society such as South Africa. I argue that the real benefits for students of such courses outweigh the pessimism of John McPeck and Richard Paul that they do little, if any, good. This paper is based on my experience of having taught critical reasoning at school and university level in South Africa during the early 90's
