Think Critically

A recap from Farish Noor’s What Your Teacher Didn’t Tell You.

To paraphrase the great Indian scholar-statesman S. Radhakerishnan, the essence of education lies in the freeing and challenging of the human mind, but this is not a labour that necessary has an appropriate avenue for it. One does not think better in a library or on a campus, and one is not smarter simply because one reads as many books as one can get one’s hands on. Critical thinking requires honest and courageous engagement, and a conscious will to break from convention, to think outside the the safe confines of the familiar, to go beyond habit and routine, and dare to question.”
