CRITICAL THINKING, AND FREEDOM

To be, or not to be: that is the question:  Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer  The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,  Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,  And by opposing end them? William Shakespeare from Hamlet If you want to think outside the box, the first thing is to step out of the box! An education within a particular system it is focused in nurturing, and prop up the same system, so it is delusional to believe, you can step out of the box at the same time you want to upheld the system.

Bertrand Russell's 10 Essential Rules Of Critical Thinking -

Bertrand Russell’s 10 Essential Rules Of Critical Thinking By Terry Heick For a field of study that explores the nature of knowledge, Philosophy has had a surprisingly small impact on education. Most formal academic ‘platforms’ like public schools and universities tend to parse knowledge into content areas–what is being learned–rather than how and why it is being learned. This, to a degree, reduces the function of pure philosophy. Psychology, Neurology, and even Anthropology all have had a louder voice in ‘education,’ which may explain why critical thinking seems to be so often missing from most school and curriculum design.

7 Ways to Improve Your Critical Thinking Skills

When I was in 7th grade, my U. S. history teacher gave my class the following advice: Your teachers in high school won’t expect you to remember every little fact about U. S. history. They can fill in the details you’ve forgotten. What they will expect, though, is for you to be able to think; to know how to make connections between ideas and evaluate information critically. I didn’t realize it at the time, but my teacher was giving a very basic summary of critical thinking. My high school teachers gave a similar speech when describing what would be expected of us in college: it’s not about the facts you know, but rather about your ability to evaluate them.
