How to Teach Lawyers, Judges, and Law Students Critical Thinking: Chapter Two: Understanding Critical Thinking
I have decided to post one more chapter from my new book on SSRN.
This is the central chapter in my book, How to Teach Lawyers, Judges, and Law Students Critical Thinking: Millions Saw the Apple Fall, but Newton asked Why (2020). It introduces critical thinking, and sets up the other key chapters in my book: Chapter 4. Teaching Critical Thinking in Law School, Chapter 5. Critical Thinking and the Socratic Method as a Teaching`Technique in Legal Education, and Chapter 8. Judges and Critical Thinking. Because it is an introductory chapter on critical reasoning, the reader does not need any legal background to understand it.
