WORLDWIDE JOURNAL OF RESEARCH,
Vol. 1 No. 3 (2020): Volume 1 Number 3
This interest of this paper lies in an appraisal of an article in the bookshelf, titled ‘Writing Philosophically in Education’, by Anthony Owan Enoh. It rightly puts into consideration few accolades of Anthony O-Enoh, and further reaches out to the epistemological realms as it concern the study. The paper argues for serious attempts at making philosophical writings more engaging and more appealing, and also establishes that philosophical writing must be accompanied by the six-way test, CALDIS – critical, analytical, logical, dialectical, integrative, and speculative posited by Enoh. Drawing on the conceptual analysis of the paper, there is a dire need to develop the skill of critical thinking in learners; for if developed, can bring about an effective and a favourable milieu to the beings-in-the-world.
