The Art of Thinking : A Guide to Critical and Creative Thought
The Art of Thinking introduces students to the principles and techniques of critical thinking, taking them step-by-step through the problem-solving process. Emphasizing creative and active thought processes, the author asserts that good thinking and problem-solving is based on learnable strategies. The book's four parts, "Be Aware," "Be Creative," "Be Critical," and "Communicate Your Ideas," present students with a process for solving problems and resolving controversial issues.
Discussions of how to evaluate ideas and how to question long-held assumptions or biases help students look at concepts critically. This text can be used in freshman experience courses, freshman composition courses, and a wide array of other courses where instructors want to enhance students' critical thinking skills.
