A University of Bremen/University of Guelph Philosophy lecture series.
The title of this talk may sound like a truism. Research and education, it seems, are always about thinking critically. They are always about inquiring and questioning things rather than taking them simply at face value. Or might this just be an ideal? What exactly do we expect from a “critical” researcher, and how do we facilitate the education of “critical” students? The lecture will address these questions in a rather broad manner; first, by putting the term “critical thinking” into relation with other important concepts such as appropriateness and responsibility; second, by emphasizing the fact that (in science as well as in daily life) means, ends, and even concepts are subject to change. The last part of the lecture will be about concrete examples from teaching; that is, about different interactive and interdisciplinary formats meant to facilitate students’ ability to reflect critically upon their own work and discipline.
