Critical Thinking The technology of How to think, not What to think.
I'm Mark McIntire. As a Philosophy Professor I've been teaching critical thinking and writing since 1967. Now, I'm offering this online course to the general public; to life-long learners who simply want the knowledge of valid and sound reasoning/refutation on any debatable topic.
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I first read Mark McIntire's excellent Reason, Argue, Refute three years ago, and have reread it twice since and keep it handy for that quick "I need to look up what he wrote" moments at the office. It is literally a "boot camp of the mind" book.
