Is critical thinking a skill? Can one teach critical thinking?
Stephen has delivered the course on Critical Literacies MOOC in the past. He says: reasoning skills do not change from discipline to discipline. Here’s Stephen’s response.
Stephen responds in his comments:
Critical thinking cuts a wide swatch across all disciplines. Just like with mathematics, the principles of critical thinking do not change from one domain to the next.
Alex says here
The last bullet….suggests that logical argumentation and reason are not absolutes but are instead ideological products of the relations «among language, knowledge and power.» This is a familiar view to anyone with experience in critical theory, postmodernism, cultural studies, etc. This view would suggest that the evaluative processes supported by logical argumentation and reason are not critical at all, or at least are not sufficient.
