How We Think and How to Think Better

Lecture no. 1 from the course: The Philosopher's Toolkit: How to Be the Most Rational Person in Any Room

How We Think and How to Think Better

Taught by Professor Patrick Grim | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Thinking is fundamental to our daily lives, and this introduction surveys the philosopher’s toolkit, strategies to improve our thinking—visualization, simplification, the principles of debate, and techniques for social reasoning. Because the best philosophy is done in conjunction with other disciplines, you’ll apply these tools to economics, psychology, and more.
