Analyze the Logic of a Concept or Idea
Critical thinkers have confidence in their ability to figure out the logic of anything they choose. They continually look for order, system and interrelationships. They say “there is a logic to this, and I can figure it out!” For example, consider the logic of rationality, anger, fear and love. Below, we offer a template for analyzing analyzing the logic of any concept. Note that many of the concepts in the previous activity may fall into the category focused on articulating a given concept, which we are learning in this section.
For any significant concept, complete these statements:
Click on a concept or idea to complete an activity then view a specimen answer for that topic. Again, remember that our specimen answers represent plausible ways of articulating the foundations of the concept using the elements of reasoning wheel. These logics may be expanded, and you may have a different, yet feasible, way of articulating them.
