Our Critical Thinking Crisis

Our Critical Thinking Crisis

Fake news, fact-checking, unverifiable stories that go viral… Sorting through today’s news and information is like playing detective, looking for clues of truth and then connecting the dots in a way that’s meaningful and relevant. Sure, traditional media is increasing their vigilance, and Google and Facebook are augmenting their b.s. detection algorithms to help us navigate through. But in the face of increasing disruption, nothing can replace our own personal ability to sort through the hype and hubris and create our own mosaic of understanding and action. In the increasingly polarized world of the past few months, I have wondered if we are facing a critical thinking crisis like never before.
