Students recognize opinion is insufficient because insufficient information (methodology, evidence, explanatory power, predictive power, logic, conclusions) used in knowledge claims. Students may recognize that even though the world is uncertain, they must make choices, and that choices require methods of critical thinking. Knowledge is certain
Things are black/white,
right/wrong. Questions have objective
and true answers. Authories have
and know eternal
truth. Students believe that in uncertain situations,
knowlege and truth are subjective and personal. Students believe that in uncertain situations people choose to apply premises, frameworks, hypotheses, and theories. They believe policy conclusions are not self-evident. Students may come to accept that choices require BOTH knowledge AND values. Knowledge, theories, and methods are imperfect and uncertain. Personal choice requires acknowledging personal responsibilty that follows from personal values. Commitment within Contextual Relativism Multiplicity Contextual
