  •  I don't think it's so much... (none)
    ...a matter of talking about it as much as the importance of pointing out when it has been used and how it was applied.  How do we determine whether or not we have enough information to answer a question, whether or not the information we do have is relevant, what information is more or less important than other information, what the difference is between fact and belief, and what the correct form of an argument is, besides just the parts about analyzing syllogisms and drawing conclusions from graphs and tables of data (which is what many people seem to think is the entirety of what it means).

    Deciding if a question even has an answer is just as important as deciding what that answer might be, in my opinion.  But then, I'm a mathematician and I've studied Gödel. ;-)


    Teacher's Lounge opens each Saturday, sometime between 10am and 11am EST
