"Fun" With Critical Thinking   

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of identifying a real-life problemor issue; locating the true facts relevant to the problem or issue; listening actively; researching in a schooled manner; and carefully applying logic, reason and experience to reach a conclusion regarding that problem or issue. This process requires that we identify how humans think; be mindful of our cognitive and emotional biases; keep an open mind; and apply statistics when available and appropriate. This class could help us find truer facts and make better decisions. For fun, we will look at WYSIATI, IYI, prospect theory, black swans, blinking outliers, and other concepts.
