“Critical thinkers can be parodied either as disgruntled and bitter subversives, or as elitist mockers of others’ well-meant efforts. The pejorative associations surrounding the word critical have meant that advocating critical thinking is a form of social and educational bad taste.”
– STEPHEN D. BROOKFIELD; Developing Critical Thinkers, 1987. Quotation from International Education Quotations Encyclopaedia, by Keith Allan Noble (Open University Press, 1995).
One comment on “CRITICAL THINKING”
I wonder to what extent critical thinking is integrated into the educational curriculum at the secondary or lower level. I recall briefly learning about logical fallacies in a social studies class back in high school.
