The dilemma is that while there is general consensus that critical thinking can be e ff ectively taught and learnt, how to do this is generally unclear. A number of approaches have been suggested but the literature has yet to fi nd evidence of their e ff ectiveness. For example, some believe that it should be included in problem-based learning (Zabit 2010 ) or debate based learning activities. Others see critical thinking as an important component in design thinking (Glen, Sucio, and Baughn 2014 ; Johansson-Sköldberg, Woodilla, and Çetinkaya 2013 ) or experiential learning (Lamb 2015 ). The following section details Part 2 of the analysis. NVivo was used to analyse the 787 articles. We extend the analysis in Part 1 to pay particular atten- tion to the underlying theoretical foundations, methods or approaches used, disciplinary contexts, and associated skills of most interest to researchers. Theoretical foundations There were 160 references to theory as a code or theme. Closer inspection reveals the theories most used by researchers of critical thinking in business education. Learning theory (12 references) was used as a theoretical foundation the most, followed by social theory and critical theory (10 each). Dis- cipline-based theories such as marketing, ethics, management, game and critical race theories follow.
