And Critical Thinking is appropriate at the Tertiary Level of education. At the Primary and Secondary Levels, we are learning our culture, but at the Tertiary Level we learn to critique our culture.
Critical Thinking causes cognitive dissonance which is emotionally painful and so is inappropriate to those learning at the Primary and Secondary Levels.
However the cognitive dissonance of Critical Thinking is like stretching an unused muscle, and the more we stretch it, the more supple we become.
And also the reward of Critical Thinking is the discovery of new insights.
Western Civilization began our journey in Critical Thinking 3,000 years ago in Ancient Greece with the philosopher Socrates.
And Socrates was poisoned by those who felt the same way about Socrates as you feel about me.
