Abstract:

Following an approach that is empirical but not psychological, and 
dialectical but not dialogical, Maurice Finocchiaro defines concepts such 
as reasoning, argument, argument analysis, critical reasoning, 
methodological reflection, judgment, critical thinking, and informal 
logic. Including extended critiques of the views of many contemporary 
scholars, he also integrates into the discussion Arnauld's Port-Royal 
Logic, Gramsci's theory of intellectuals, and case studies from the 
history of science, particularly the work of Galileo, Newton, Huygens, and 
Lavoisier.
