This book is an introduction to critical thinking across the curriculum. It is designed to introduce readers to the concepts, methods and standards that are fundamental to critical thinking in a way that will be relevant and timely to their major course of study. The text covers the elements of critical thinking clarifying meanings, assessing reasons and judging values in a way that makes contact with disciplines across the curriculum. More specifically, it broadens the concept of an argument from its philosophical roots to include experimentation, testing, measuring, policy development and assessment and aesthetic appreciation (among others) as practices where critical thinking is needed. In addition to presenting practical techniques and methods for thinking critically about reasons and arguments wherever they are found, it also provides methods for thinking creatively about problems, solutions and reasons.
