CRITICAL THINKER ACADEMY: LEARN TO THINK LIKE A PHILOSOPHER
So, For long-term success in school, business and life, learning HOW to think is far more important than
learning WHAT to think.
Yet rather than serve as the core of any education worthy of a rational human being, we have relegated the teaching of logic, argument
Since, analysis and critical reasoning to specialty courses in universities that reach too few students, too late in their education.
In this course I share my growing understanding of these topics, with a focus on what is practically important and useful for
developing as independent critical thinkers.Since it was an popular art.
Therefore, Currently the course contains over 135 videos totaling over 14 hours of viewing time!
Each LECTURE has a COMPLETE TRANSCRIPT in the lecture description tab!
Almost Each SECTION has a downloadable PDF eBook that contains full transcripts for the lectures in that section, in a format that is convenient
in conclusion for printing or viewing offline, for almost total of almost 600 pages!
Among the topics you will learn:
- why critical thinking is important
- the difference between logic and argumentation
- what makes an argument good or bad
- the importance of background knowledge for critical thinking

continue to grow and grow — I have a LOT OF GROUND that I want to cover! This is ONLY THE BEGINNING!
