Critical Thinking

Of all the objectives associated with postsecondary study, one of the primary ones surely is the skill of critical thinking. Cultivating and spreading the ideology of critical thinking is an objective that unites many disciplines. 

The National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking broadly defines critical thinking as “the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action. In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.”
