先修课程 博雅讨论班:批判性思维(上)&(下)
中文简介 批判性思维是超越于各个具体专业的一种理性思维方法,是为学、为人、为家、开拓各种事业的一个有力工具。 它需要人在纷繁复杂的问题面前, 穿透枝枝蔓蔓的东西抓住核心内容、基本概念和问题。在我们的课程中, 对文学的核心(对根本人性和情感的关怀)、社会的核心(公民基本权力和社会组织基本理念)、科学的基本概念(数学,物理,化学,生物)做认真的探讨。要求学生学习和养成获取和分析真实、一手的数据、信息来分析问题的习惯。通过小组作业训练学生如何找寻资料、分析资料。旨在加强学生的逻辑力,进行有深度有层次的思考,避免妨害正确思维的概念模糊、缺乏数据、逻辑混乱、以及错误立场(宗教狂热、民族主义、法西斯主义等)。我们努力营造一个天地, 使得大家在这个环境中完全畅所欲言。能够做到:1. 敢于提问, 敢于质疑权威; 2. 关心世界、中国、学科的大事、根本性的问题; 3. 乐于深度阅读经典,敢于而且善于思考艰深的问题。既尊重、热爱人类思想的典籍, 又不被它们吓到; 4. 拥有深度交流的能力(书面、口头); 5. 有勇气为正确的事情敢于担当.
英文简介 Critical thinking is an important element of all professional fields and academic disciplines (by referencing their respective sets of permissible questions, evidence sources, criteria, etc.). Within the framework of scientific skepticism, the process of critical thinking involves the careful acquisition and interpretation of information and use of it to reach a well-justified conclusion.
The course will be in general areas of study--philosophy, mathematics, literature, art history, economics, languages, and so on--rather than in applied or specialized fields. A liberal arts education is not intended to train you for a specific job, though it does prepare you for the world of work by providing you with an invaluable set of employability skills, including the ability to think for yourself, the skills to communicate effectively, and the capacity for lifelong learning.
