Video Series: Intellectual Standards
This video collection explores universal intellectual standards. Intellectual standards are standards which must be applied to thinking whenever you need to check the quality of reasoning about a problem, issue, or situation. To think critically entails having command of these standards. To help learn them, you should pose questions which probe thinking; questions which hold you and others accountable for the thinking being done; questions which, through consistent use become internalized as questions you routinely ask in order to check and improve thinking. The ultimate goal, then, is for these questions to become infused in your thinking, forming part of your inner voice, which then guides you to better and better reasoning.
