Episode 220: Critical Thinking, with Jonathan Haber

Give and Take

My guest is Jonathan Haber. He's the author of Critical Thinking. Critical thinking is regularly cited as an essential twenty-first century skill, the key to success in school and work. Given our propensity to believe fake news, draw incorrect conclusions, and make decisions based on emotion rather than reason, it might even be said that critical thinking is vital to the survival of a democratic society. But what, exactly, is critical thinking? In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Jonathan Haber explains how the concept of critical thinking emerged, how it has been defined, and how critical thinking skills can be taught and assessed. You can check out Jonathan's site, LogicCheck.net, where uses the news of the day to teach practical critical-thinking skills. You can read more about his work in critical-thinking education http://www.degreeoffreedom.org.Special Guest: Jonathan Haber.
