Description

This work notes that people understand objects, ideas and events by using a small set of thinking strategies. Understanding is equated with the development and application of generalizations, hypotheses and evaluations. These concepts are drawn from the philosophical areas of epistemology and informal logic, yet are consistent with the psychological perspective which typifies existing descriptions of thinking This book shows how people use the same thinking strategies to make sense of the world, whether the medium of experience is contemplation, listening, speaking, reading or writing.
