Two key phrases on the A2 syllabus are 'cognitive' and 'non-cognitive', I am a little confused about the definitions- I think non-cognitive refers to non-cognitivism and cognitive to cognitivism- which I think is more to do with trusting and judging moral/emotional values as having truth-value.

Any one have any ideas what the teacher is trying to imply? I am confused because I know cognitive as thinking and non-cognitive as non thinking, yet at A2 they are using the words to refer to truth-values.

@de budding,
What is "A2" if I may be so bold as to ask?
