Through a different lens_Critical Thinking

“If we are not prepared to think for ourselves, and to make the effort to learn how to do this well, we will always be in danger of becoming slaves to the ideas and values of others due to our own ignorance.”
-William Hughes
This quote, in itself, sums up the key take away from the Critical Thinking sessions covered as of yet. The basic idea has been to be aware of our thinking process and to look at things from different lenses and perspectives to arrive at a fair conclusion. To know when and where to apply these skills, rather than looking at each and everything critically is something that needs constant work. Knowing, and at the same time, being conscious of varied types of biases that one possesses, has been an eye-opener and interesting to read about. The activities, discussions, debates and especially murdering our darlings were fun. Looking forward to further sessions.
