A Brief History of the Idea of Critical Thinking

A Brief History of the Idea of Critical Thinking | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

Socrates established the fact that one cannot depend upon those in "authority" to have sound knowledge and insight. He demonstrated that persons may have power and high position and yet be deeply confused and irrational. He established the importance of asking deep questions that probe profoundly into thinking before we accept ideas as worthy of belief.
