Question and answer
What are assumptions? How do you think assumptions might interfere with critical thinking? What might you do to avoid making assumptions in your thinking?
In logic an assumption is a proposition that is taken for granted, as if it were true based upon presupposition without preponderance of the facts. An assumption that is considered to be self-evident or otherwise fundamental is called an axiom. [ It might interfere critical thinking in the sense that if we always assume things the way we want them to be, then we are forgetting that we have to
have basis before we make conclusions. To avoid making assumptions, you will need to collect information and use them as basis of your statements. ]
