Participation in this group requires active membership in the Center for Critical Thinking Community Online. Join now to participate!
This study group will explore ways to improve the quality of your thinking and, therefore, help you achieve your goals and ambitions, make better decisions, and understand where others are trying to influence your thinking (for better or worse). It will help you take charge of what you do in your professional and personal life, how you relate to others, and even what emotions you feel. If you are an educator, it will help you to improve the quality of your students’ thinking and learning.
The problems we increasingly face in teaching and learning, business, society, and daily life require thinking that is complex, adaptable, and sensitive to divergent points of view. The modern world requires that we continually re-learn, routinely re-think our decisions, and regularly re-evaluate the ways in which we work and live. In short, the reality we now face is one in which the power of the mind to command itself, to regularly engage in competent analysis and evaluation, will increasingly determine the quality of our learning, our professional endeavors, and our lives.
Since few people understand the powerful role that thinking plays in their lives, few ever gain significant command of their thoughts. Therefore, most people are frequent victims of their own thinking, harmed rather than helped by it. They are often their own worst enemies; their reasoning acts as a continual source of problems, preventing them from recognizing opportunities, keeping them from exerting energy where it would do the most good, poisoning their relationships, and leading them down blind alleys.
Through this study group, discover and leverage the power of thinking to achieve more significant goals in your work, your teaching and learning, and your personal life – to live a fuller, happier, more secure life.
