Question and answer
What does it mean to say that critical thinking is not negative thinking? Give examples.
Critical thinking is sometimes mistaken as negative thinking or destructive thinking. But look at the relation of critical thinking to belief. It is not the goal of critical thinking to destroy belief but to arrive at reasonable belief. [ Critical thinking is not a negative thinking as opposed to a positive or a creative thinking. The critical thinker does ask questions, but she asks them in
order to decide what is reasonable to believe. The critical thinker is obviously not so gullible that she believes everything she is told. But neither is she so skeptical that she believes nothing she is told. The critical thinker distinguishes reliable testimony from unreliable and weighs evidence to decide what is reasonable. ]
