The End of Thinking?

SKU: 9780647531303
Author: Dr Mark Stephens | Publisher: Acorn Press

What were you thinking?

We all feel entitled to our opinion. Whether it be our take on politics, vaccines, parenting, or the value of religion, everybody wants to have their say – and everybody loves to be right.

But do we know what it means to think well?

Covering ‘idiot brain’, lobotomies, the difference between certainty and confidence, the nature of facts, and the virtue of intellectual hospitality, Mark Stephens invites you to consider not just what you think but how and why you think.

Do we think only for ourselves, or also for the good of others?
