in thread Problematic post on teaching programming

I think the subject used to be called "Rhetoric", and it was once taught in college (sometimes even earlier). I agree that some effort should be made to teach people how to reason in a disciplined manner. Without that, much education is merely stuffing people full of facts that they may retain for a lifetime, but which they can't make much use of.
