Participants will discuss the varying approaches in identifying and resolving a variety of issues based on rational thought. This is an extension of the thinking that evolved during the Age of Reason. Participants will learn methods and questions to ask when determining what the problem really is and therefore how to approach it. There will be opportunities to apply certain methods in class and discuss the practical components of critical thinking theory (e.g. Bayesian logic).
