* The term/word "Critic" as in the case of CRITICAL THINKING, derives its etymology (origins), from the Greek word/term "kritikos", meaning "able to make judgments" as in "the ability to decide".
Therefore before you can make a Judgment, and/or are able to decide, you will need to have the ability or facility to ask the right type of relevant and appropriate questions (the right questions).
How do you get to the point where you are asking the right questions? Well, you have to start somewhere, so you start by asking any questions that you can think of. In other words, you may start by asking irrelevant, inappropriate and/or anomalous questions.
Sometimes, something worth doing is worth doing wrong at the start. Getting something wrong at the start of any process is probably the best way to educate and inform yourself. Well at least this way, you will have a list of ways that do not work, and so can consciously avoid the wrong way in the future.
Eventually, you will reach a point in your questioning, when the questions you ask, will be relevant, pertinent and appropriate. This is perhaps is the whole point for doing the Critical Thinking tutorials.
Getting answers to these questions will eventually bring you to "the facts" and/or "the truth" of the matter or issue in question, and from there you will be in a very strong position to make a JUDGEMENT and/or a DECISION.
By AS-KING questions you are operating as the/a Sovereign, as in acting As King. And only a King or perhaps a Queen as being Sovereign, can make FINAL JUDGMENTS and/or DECISIONS.
This is a Ruimentary Skill that for obvious reasons is not taught in "the States" Schools, and an Ability that every Man and Woman on this Island should have and possess ... and should perhaps be passing on to their own Family, Children, Grandchildren and/or Descendants.
The Basic Technique of Critical Reading, Writing and Thinking, can be taught to any average Man or Woman in under ten minutes. Then you have the rest of your life to fine tune and perfect the skill. Critical Thinking and/or Reasoning once learned, can be used in almost every aspect of life, apart from legal or financial issues, matters or concerns you may have.
It is also a fun thing to learn ... as we try to make it so.
The next set of (evening) Tutorials on Critical Reading, Writing and Thinking commence on Tuesday 7th. June 2016. More information and booking details can be found here:
