argue

аргументировать

There are two meanings of this word that need to be distinguished:

  1. to argue in the sense of to fight or to emotionally disagree;
  2. to give reasons for or against a proposal or proposition.

In emphasizing critical thinking, we continually try to get our students to move from the first sense of the word to the second; that is, we try to get them to see the importance of giving reasons to support their views without getting their egos involved in what they are saying. This is a fundamental problem in human life. To argue in the critical thinking sense is to use logic and reason, and to bring forth facts to support or refute a point. It is done in a spirit of cooperation and good will.
