Have you ever thought about thinking? How do you think? Do you like puzzles? The puzzle of better thinking is called critical thinking. Critical thinking provides methods to understand arguments. What is a proper argument? (Hint: There aren’t any raised voices included!) Critical thinking provides insightful processes to analyze proper arguments, their premises and flaws. We will explore how to think more purposefully about what we hear, read or think. We will exercise these skills through classroom discussions, homework and an end of semester scenario exam.
