Initially intended to be a science resource portal, and aptly named the Critical Thinking and Science portal, Philosophy + is a place where you can find and ask the important questions in any format you wish or from any perspective. We do ask that you remain responsible and honest when asking these questions, and obviously that you always keep respect in mind.
Here no question is off limits, and not topic is taboo. And on these grounds no idea or belief is beyond reproach and scrutiny.
Thank you for visiting.
Philosophy + is dedicated to offering information about science, philosophy and critical thinking education. Our goal is to present resources through which our guest can acquire better appreciation for these disciplines…We appreciate your visit, and hope you find what you are looking for.
You may ask yourself why this endeavour is important; why should we care about thinking critically?
The answer to this question is simple yet very important: today, more than ever before, people need to be able to filter meaningful information from the inordinate amounts of data they have access to. The advent of the information age has given way to the dissemination of unverified opinions, and in turn to the proliferation of misinformation.
Critical thinking can help…
It is the practice of using a number of different advanced thinking skills in a variety of complex ways. It focuses on thought and looks at how facts are proven, arguments are formed, conclusions are reached and not just what the facts, argument or conclusion may be. It is self-reflective: it involves reflecting on, questioning and testing your own thinking processes.
There are important ideas we must all entertain to be successful in our personal and social lives, and to be of benefit to our society.
