Critical Analysis Essay
Using the concepts learned through the readings and interactive lecture pages, write a critical analysis essay that answers two (and only two) of the following prompts or questions:
- Analyze the differences among inert information, assumptions, and inferences. Explain an assumption that you have made in the past that had important consequences.
- Compare and contrast the difference between activated ignorance and activated knowledge?
- Explain why critical thinking demands high levels of intellectual autonomy?
- Evaluate the centrality of concepts, theories, and ideas to good critical reasoning.
Your essay should include a brief introduction and a conclusion that sums up your ideas.
