Critical thinking and democracy?


Can any of you point me to work linking critical thinking and democracy? I'm particularly interested in work that proposes that education in critical thinking is a particularly apt or essential goal for education in democratic societies. Thanks!


  1. Richard Feldman has an article or book chapter on that theme. I'll try to figure out what it is.

  2. Richard Feldman, “Thinking, Reasoning, and Education,” OUP Handbook of Philosophy of Education, edited by Harvey Siegel,

  3. A popular level item:
    The lost art of democratic debate
