This workshop explores the extent to which scientific reasoning is dependent on domain-general and/or domain-specific knowledge. Improving our understanding of this enduring issue in psychology, philosophy and sociology is crucial to deepening our understanding of one of the major goals of science education at all levels. The workshop brings together scholars focusing on scientific reasoning and argumentation in a broad range of domains, including a range of natural sciences, the learning sciences, cognitive sciences, as well as computational linguistics.

Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Rainer Bromme (Münster), Susan Goldman (University of Illinois at Chicago), Iryna Gurevych (Darmstadt), Ala Samarapungavan (Purdue University), Leona Schauble (Vanderbilt University), Carla van Boxtel (Amsterdam).

Prof. Paul Thagard, Ph.D. – "Why Reason? Inference, Reasoning, and Education"
