Reviews

...Dr. Paul and Dr. Elder have developed an approach that stands in stark contrast to the tendency to embrace critical thinking as an essential, yet vaguely understood goal. The book inspires its readers to draw on methods grounded in wide-ranging examples...in order to reason effectively about the challenges that beleaguer the human condition.--Julie Stephens de Jonge, Professor of Spanish, University of Central Missouri Paul and Elder have devoted their careers to developing fairminded critical thinkers. In this book, they share deep insights into their best thinking about thinking. This book challenges us to become better in every aspect, to use our best thinking as a tool for social justice.--Dr. Daryl Watkins, Leadership Department Chair, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Richard Paul and Linda Elder's latest collaboration advocates conscious thinking...for a...world mired in cultural assumptions, egocentric behaviors, and sociocentric actions. The text, chockful of examples, offers effective ways to uncover flawed thinking processes, examine inherited values, and expand our capacities for a peaceful world.--Dr. Richard LaManna, Academic Assessment, Bronx Community College, CUNY
