Critical Thinking introduces you to useful perspectives:
On How to Think about Thinking
There are, for example, two kinds of thinking: “thinking fast,” appropriate for subjects that require and reward immediate decision making, and “thinking slow,” appropriate for subjects that require deliberation and time.
On What Makes Writing Persuasive
We look at, and talk about, written and oral examples of “weak” arguments and how to formulate strong ones. The aim: to understand the logical—and effective—connections between ideas.
Remember that critical thinking should not be confused with being argumentative or critical of other people. Critical thinking allows you to acquire knowledge to formulate strong arguments.
