Critical thinking is the study of clear and unclear thinking. It is primarily used in the field of education, and not in psychology (it does not refer to a theory of thinking). The National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking (a non-profit organisation based in Canada) defines critical thinking as the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action. Etymology One sense of the term critical means crucial; a second sense derives from κριτικός (kritikos), which means discerning judgment.
