Philosophy 110 Quiz One Review CHAPTER ONE REVIEW We used Chapter One as an introduction to the concept of Critical Thinking, doing so by spending some time and energy to analyze some of the things that stand in the way of critical thought. First, the text points out some of the attributes of “critical thinkers”, encouraging students to recognize the importance of concepts such as clarity, precision, accuracy, completeness , and  fairness  (pages 2-7) .   Then, we looked at some of the “Barriers to Critical Thinking” (pages 10-25). Here, we focused on relativistic thinking (for example, cultural relativity ), egocentrism,  and sociocentrism . The question for the first chapter will be: Describe sociocentrism, including in your description a brief evaluation of conformism  and group bias.  Then, describe how sociocentrism can be a barrier to critical thinking.  Be sure to use examples in your answer. (10 points) To answer this question for full credit, a student will need to define sociocentrism,  conformism , and  group bias,

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
