th-18032012How can one ask the best Why, How, What if, or When, if that person is not in a position to identify the aspects and parameters that make that idea a brilliant idea, that is not just an idea but also a “sensible” one? How can one be courageous and vigilant and fight for and pursue the “right” cause, project or idea? How can one be curious enough to become imaginative about life’s pleasures and rewards? How can one be creative and fulfill his vision with passion and purpose? How can one become a contributing and productive member of society but first to himself? How can one respect himself and others? How can one master the essence of life?

Can a “sensible” idea emerge without critical thinking? And can an idea be actively and skillfully conceptualized, applied, analyzed, synthesized, generalized, evaluated, observed, experienced reflected, reasoned, or communicated best as a guide to belief and action, with clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness, if it is not “embraced” by a critical thinking process?
