What to focus on while reading?
Reading the blog post Making Proper Marks in Books by @ctietze  I realised that there is probably some specific things to look for in a text while reading, and I'm wondering what these things are.
Christian's list of things he looks for in "academic" reading consists of
- definitions of terms;
- descriptions of models; and
- arguments (and perceived weaknesses in them).
My questions are
- is this an exhaustive lists of things too look for while taking in (reading, listening, etc.) knowledge (books, blog posts, lectures, etc.); and secondly
- what is a model?
Is there a subject that discuss these questions? Epistemology?
