Mya: Critical Thinking Convo1


Critical thinking is the art of rigorously analyzing and evaluating thinking so that one may reach sound reasoning. Jesse Richardson defines critical thinking as the use of creative thinking and self awareness to filter through social fallacies. Gary Meegan interprets critical thinking as “looking for artifacts of reasoning” through the way a person writes, talks, and acts. According to Richardson and Meegan, critical thinking is imperative. I agree because we owe many thanks to philosophers, scientists, and great thinkers alike for the advancements we’ve made in medicine, technology, entertainment, and other essential pillars in our day to day lives. Critical thinking allows us to surpass what we already know and advance as a society through higher thinking.
