Abstract

In this article I explore a case for the inclusion of some aspects of critical thinking and of philosophy of science within science education that appeals to two commonly accepted aims of science education. Although motivated by reading Harvey Siegel''s Educating Reason (1988), and emerging from his discussion there, the aspects I explore go beyond that discussion.
