Thinking About Thinking

While I'm taking a break from cramming studying for a Mid-term today (what is a spandrel, anyway?). So read this and think about it:


about "critical thinking"?

I'm inclined to agree that people throw the expression around too often, without really thinking through exactly what it's supposed to mean - and also that people are far too willing to pit the need for "critical thinking" against the need for mastering (including memorizing - as well as understanding) content.
