Evaluative Thinking as a Collaborative Social Practice: The Case of Boundary Judgment Making

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Evaluative thinking is often portrayed as an individual undertaking requiring cognitive capacities for analytical and critical thinking along with a set of intellectual dispositions. This chapter reviews that perspective and, without denying its importance, suggests that evaluative thinking can also be depicted as a collaborative social practice. That idea is explained and then illustrated using the example of boundary setting in evaluation.
