Critical and creative thinking aids one in recognizing when and in what respect one's own views may be incorrect, and what must be revised or discarded and what can be retained. Critical and Creative Thinking lays emphasis on clarity and rigor of argument, the apt use of example and illustration, and sensitivity to the strengths and weaknesses both of views one is examining and of one's own view thus making ideas that determine good living more explicit and relevant. Critical and creative thinking plays an important role in social change- institutions in any society (courts, governments, schools, businesses etc) - are products of a certain way of thinking.

Critical and creative thinking helps us in uncovering biases and prejudices. Critical and creative thinking is a path to freedom from half-truths and deceptions as it opens up one’s mind in seeing things independent of emotions, native biases and from different perspectives. The willingness to change one point of view as we continue to examine and re-examine ideas that may seem obvious is a major component of critical and creative thinking. Such thinking takes time and the willingness to say three subversive words: “ I don't know ." Means need to learn and not an expression of ignorance. Page 3 of 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
