This book, Critical Thinking, is an outgrowth of an undergraduate course that the author developed and taught at Machakos University in Kenya. It presents the definition, nature, and foundations of critical thinking. It further discusses the various schools of thought on the subject of critical thinking, a matter that underlines the broad range of debates that pertain to the subject. In this respect, it demonstrates a great deal of energy that has been expended by theorists of critical thinking on the debate on the nature of critical thinking, generating provocative, interesting and important philosophical perspectives.
The work provides students of Critical Thinking with necessary tools to cope successfully with undergraduate and graduate-level courses, and post-academic life. It contains adequate material supportive of postgraduate studies and research in critical thinking.
