PHILOSOPHY FOR CRITICAL THINKERS
If you have ever wondered about how people ought to live, about why evil exists, about the existence and nature of a supreme being, about the possibility of life after death, or even about the meaning of life itself, you have begun to do philosophy. Philosophy is a passionate commitment to search for truth, with the aim of doing or saying the right thing, at the right place, at the right time, and for the right reasons.
When we say that we want to become critical thinkers or to teach our students to be critical thinkers what do we mean? Critical thinking is thinking which reflects relevant reasons used to support a belief, or conclusion, or argument and it requires the development of reason assessment skills to evaluate the reasons we and others use to justify the conclusions, claims, and judgments we and they make.
