Skepticism, Humility, and Curiosity

Kritikal Thinker

During my very first semester at Saginaw Valley State University, I enrolled into an Intro to Logic Philosophy class. 'Critical Thought' was the class’s hot topic, although it never really stuck out to me at first, until I realized how powerful such a mind-set can be.

After taking that class, I came up with three concepts that I think encapsulate critical thought, and would help people grow in understanding what turns information into knowledge:

Skepticism - As much as this means "question everything", it also means being a healthy skeptic. Being over-skeptical could thrust the unaware into a compounding realm of doubt.

Humility - Sometimes we are presented with new information, and sometimes the advent of new theories means old theories must die. In order to get to the place that I like to call "Fact Ave.", we must be honest with what we know and what we don't know. But who knows?

And finally…

Curiosity - They say, "Curiosity killed the cat", but I bet that cat was happy when it passed. Stay curious, always have a will to wonder.

I liked these concepts so much that I decided to create this song called "Kritikal Thinker".

Enjoy and inspire!
