Perspectives on Scientific Argumentation: Theory, Practice and Research

Argumentation—arriving at conclusions on an issue via a technique of logical reasoning that incorporates debate and persuasion— has lately emerged as a valuable subject of dialogue between technology educators and researchers. there's now an organization and basic trust that fostering argumentation in studying actions can enhance scholars’ serious considering and reasoning abilities, and that dialogic and collaborative inquiries are key precursors to an engagement in clinical argumentation.

D. research projects were naturally of human size, with maximum opportunity for individual initiative, for an individual's learning just how capable a scientist or engineer he could be. The important features at each university were, first, that an umbrella contract provided for continuity of support and for the ability to buy large quanta of equipment and facilities. Second, a local director committed a substantial fraction of his career to making the program succeed. He could use the longevity of support to extract concessions from the university and departmental administrations.

D. students. I am sure many would give a good deal of the credit to the early support from the ARPA program, to the central facilities, to the fine building, library, and connections with chemistry and metallurgy nourished by the program, and to the colleagues provided in part by the program. Of course, much is also due to their own imagination, energy, physical insight, drive, and generosity of spirit. Thus, although I do not suggest that I am competent to evaluate the materials laboratories, I do claim some part of the success of individuals as a success of the program.

In a situation characterized by a shortage of manpower well-grounded in solid state physics, physical chemistry and crystallography, one naturally turns to the university where funds produce not only the needed research but trained manpower as well. In various universities one finds the faculties engaged in planning interdepartmental efforts to establish a new materials science and engineering. One of their problems is the lack of buildings and equipment. There are many research tools such as electron microscopes, electron diffraction units, high temperature furnaces, and x-ray diffraction units, each of which represents a cost of approximately $20,000.
