2019 Dartmouth Livestream Event
6 Individual Lectures Livestreamed* from Osher@Dartmouth
Critical Thinking for the Preservation of Our Democracy
Recently there has been a sharp decline in critical thinking – listening thoughtfully and evaluating different points of view objectively on an issue. Rather, partisan and often uncivil tribal loyalty is dominating the discourse, and Americans are more and more getting their information and opinions from media vehicles that already agree and reinforce their going-in opinions. Other points of view are ignored.
