Do you want to be logical like Einstein, observant like Sherlock, and rational like Plato? These great names have something in common: they are all exceptional critical thinkers. What did they do differently that made them so recognizable for their intellects? - They thought slowly and deliberately before making a snap judgment or decision - They questioned every fact and opinion (including their own) - They took the time to study the subject or object of their decision making to gather information before jumping to conclusions - They accepted and expected that human nature is ultimately biased and prone to make cognitive errors The Critical Thinker gives you a thorough description of the rules and principles of critical thinking practiced by Einstein, Plato and every great thinker in history. You will learn about the most important critical thinking principles as well as shortcuts to make better decisions in specific situations. These critical thinking principles will help your personal life, career, and friendships. Improve your critical, logical, observational, and rational thinking skills with the timeless principles presented in this book. Critical thinking skills will improve your relationships and your financial life too. - Learn the main principles of critical thinking. - Train your cognitive muscles to think faster and jump to the best conclusions effortlessly. - Find the most rewarding options in any opportunity. - Don't just attack symptoms, solve your problems once and for all.

Regardless of your stage of life or field of work (business, education, healthcare, or student) you'll find the book equally useful. - Become a more effective communicator with more impactful points. - Detect the thinking errors of larger groups or individuals. - Powerful questions to effectively self-assess. - Best practices to employ critical thinking principles in your life immediately. Improving your critical thinking skills will help you save time, filter out irrelevant information efficiently, and prioritize your resources to get the best results.

Das Hauptwerk des Boethius ist die Consolatio philosophiae („Trost der Philosophie") in fünf Büchern. Außer diesem Titel kommt auch die Form De consolatione philosophiae („Über den Trost der Philosophie") in den Handschriften vor. Das Werk entstand nach Boethius' Verhaftung. Mit der Gestaltung als Prosimetrum (Prosa mit eingefügten Gedichten) greift Boethius eine in der Spätantike beliebte Form auf. Er verwendet 28 verschiedene Versmaße. Die Consolatio philosophiae besteht aus 39 Prosatexten und 39 Gedichten, die abwechselnd aufeinander folgen. Das dargelegte philosophische Gedankengut stammt vor allem aus den Werken Platons, des Aristoteles und der Neuplatoniker, aber auch stoische Vorstellungen sind eingeflossen. Auf die Lehren Platons wird immer wieder zustimmend Bezug genommen. Das Werk reiht sich in die Tradition der antiken Trostliteratur ein und ist zugleich ein Protreptikos (eine zur Philosophie ermunternde Schrift). Dargestellt wird der Heilungsprozess des in seiner Not seelisch erkrankten Gefangenen. Das Werk zerfällt in zwei Hälften, wobei das berühmte, ungefähr in die Mitte gestellte neunte Gedicht des dritten Buches (Anfang: O qui perpetua) den Übergang und Wendepunkt bildet. Im ersten, negativen Teil wird dem Leser die Nichtigkeit der irdischen Güter und die Sinnlosigkeit des Strebens nach ihnen vor Augen gestellt. Im zweiten, positiven Teil richtet sich das Augenmerk auf die Alternative zu diesen vergeblichen Bemühungen: die zum Erfolg führende Suche nach dem einzig wahren Gut, dem Guten schlechthin. Ob der abrupt wirkende Schluss stimmig und das Werk somit als abgeschlossen zu betrachten ist, ist in der Forschung umstritten. Unklar ist auch, ob die Schrift schon vor dem Abschluss des Gerichtsverfahrens oder erst nach der Verhängung des Todesurteils entstanden ist und ob Boethius sich im Kerker oder in einem relativ komfortablen Hausarrest mit Bibliothekszugang befand.

"William Hughes's Critical Thinking, recently revised and updated by Jonathan Lavery, is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the essential skills required to make strong arguments. Hughes and Lavery give a thorough treatment of such traditional topics as deductive and inductive reasoning, logical fallacies and how to spot them, the importance of inference, how to recognise and avoid ambiguity, and how to assess what is or is not relevant to an argument. But they also cover a variety of topics not always treated in books of this sort - special concerns to keep in mind when reasoning about ethical matters and how the nature of a language can affect the structure of an argument. The book gives a lucid treatment of the differences between descriptive and evaluative meaning: one person's freedom fighter is another person's terrorist." "For the fourth edition, Jonathan Lavery has added a new chapter on scientific reasoning, expanded the treatment of analogies, added numerous examples, and revised and updated the text throughout."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Jeff McLaughlin’s How to Think Critically begins with the premise that we are all, every day, engaged in critical thinking. But as we may develop bad habits in daily life if we don’t scrutinize our practices, so we are apt to develop bad habits in critical thinking if we are careless in our reasoning. This book exists to instill good thinking habits: attentiveness to word choice, avoidance of fallacies, and effective construction and assessment of arguments. With relatable and often amusing examples included throughout, the book adopts a degree of technical sophistication that is rigorous and yet still easily applied to ordinary situations. Venn diagrams, truth tables, and McLaughlin’s ‘S-Test’ —a step-by-step method for argument analysis—are presented to the reader not as concepts for academic study but as tools for better thinking and living.

Design Thinking hilft, kreative Lösungen für komplexe Probleme zu finden. Die Autoren übertragen dieses Prinzip auf das Leben und die Berufswahl. Denke wie ein Designer: Stelle Fragen, suche Verbündete, mache Fehler, baue Prototypen, denke interdisziplinär – und werde zum Designer deines eigenen Lebens! Diese Ideen präsentieren die beiden Professoren seit sieben Jahren an der Stanford University,was zu chronisch überbuchten Kursen führt.

Der ehemalige SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann gilt als einer der Hauptverantwortlichen für die »Endlösung« der Juden in Europa. Der Prozess gegen ihn fand 1961 in Jerusalem statt. Hannah Arendts Prozessbericht wurde von ihr 1964 als Buch publiziert und brachte eine Lawine ins Rollen: Es stieß bei seinem Erscheinen auf heftige Ablehnung in Israel, Deutschland und in den USA– und wurde zu einem Klassiker wie kaum ein anderes vergleichbares Werk zur Zeitgeschichte und ihrer Deutung.
