The Thinker’s Creed Critical Thinking Dr. John D. Eigenauer
The Thinker’s Creed My opinion is not always right. Experts can be wrong. When two opinions differ, at least one of them is wrong. Some judgments, conclusions, solutions, and opinions are better than others.
The Thinker’s Creed My judgment, conclusion, solution, or opinion is a good one if reasonable people would also find it to be a good one. My current judgments, conclusions, solutions, and opinions may be replaced by better ones. I can use evidence, logic, and expert opinion to reach justifiable conclusions about questions and problems.
The Thinker’s Creed Good explanations, answers, conclusions, and opinions are based upon reasonable, verifiable, and justifiable premises and evidence. Reading, learning, discussion, and considering possible answers all add to my ability to reach good judgments, conclusions, solutions and opinions.
