Methodology and Critical Thinking.
Ho, Hsiu-hwang
Many different courses are offered at the college level to promote critical thinking. Teachings in critical thinking without a proper reflection on methodological foundations can be useless. Reflection upon inductive and deductive methodologies of thinking is necessary to the development of critical thinking abilities. It must be remembered that the aim of critical thinking education is to advance effective thinking, productive thinking, creative thinking, and problem solving. Future efforts in the area of critical thinking education should focus on questions of value and value judgments, distinctions between reality and ideologies used to explicate reality, an understanding of the evolutionary nature of rationality and methodology, and the role of philosophy in the teaching and learning of critical thinking.
