Master the art of thinking

“A great many people think they are thinking
when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.”
— William James —

If you take only one course in your lifetime, make it Critical Thinking Basics at The Thinkery. You will develop the fundamental skills of statement classification, research, analysis, and argument. You’ll find that these skills are tools for better communication, healthier relationships, and smoother navigation in all areas of life.

What one participant has to say …

“I am personally VERY motivated to drop my pursuits early on Tuesdays, get cleaned up, and drive to class because each week I have practical, usable takeaways and challenging thoughts that I mentally chew on all week. And those takeaways further my ability to share with others more effectively, including spiritually. … If I fully understand the difference between belief, opinion, and provable facts, etc., I am going to inevitably communicate more effectively — and garner much more respect — when I communicate with others. This class is highly valuable. A winner! I will not forget this class!”
[ G. B. ]

Lessons

  • Handle Statements • Systematically and automatically categorize statements, distinguishing among facts, falsehoods, theses, beliefs, and opinions.
