What is Critical Thinking?

By Austin B. Hahn

Critical thinking is figuring out how stuff really is as opposed to how we’re told it is and going against common sense. For example, “No company would ever try to exploit workers … but maybe they do.” Critical thinking doesn’t blindly accept arguments and conclusions. It examines assumptions, discerns hidden values, evaluates evidence, and assesses conclusions (Myers).
