on critical thinking

image

In considering the many implications of the term, I believe that critical thinking is ultimately the ability to monitor a thought process in order to lead to a reasoned and logical conclusion.  I suppose that critical thinking is a term that relies on reflective reasoning in order to come to a informed conclusion, but I’m struck by the inherently paradoxical nature of the act of thinking critically; in other words, to engage in the act of critical thinking, one must both rely on compassion and emotional detachment.  In completing all of my readings, I am consistently impressed by the importance of exploration through metacognition: a systematic monitoring of thought that aids us in considering complexities to find a process-based conclusion. 

The ability to consider multiple perspectives is a crucial component in finding a frame of reference.
