Reasoning Skills: An Overview


  • Dale Cannon
  • Mark Weinstein


Introduction:  The problem of what Philosophy is and how it relates to the contemporary concern with thinking and reasoning is one of the first items on the agenda when introducing teachers to Philosophy for Children.  Professor Cannon began offering the teachers he trains an overview of these subjects in an attempt to give them a map to some of the areas he and they were to examine during the subsequent workshop.  The following is a result of our collaboration in refining this material, which we now use in our teacher training workshops.  We offer it in hope that it will be of use to others.
