Critical Thinking 19967165

Inductive reasoning leads to the philosophical problem of induction, and conclusions you draw every day are inductive. Entertain a possibility of how these conclusions could turn out to be wrong (false). The fact that what has happened in the past cannot always predict what may happen in the future leads to uncertainty and uneasiness. In what sense are we lucky that some things do happen the way they have happened in the past? How you can improve your critical thinking by being mindful of this?

As you post your responses, please aim to include ideas from the textbook in your discussion.


I don’t believe there are too many things that we can reliably count on repeating themselves that are not scientifically set in stone. Sure we can count on the sun coming up every day, plants producing oxygen and so on. But anything that has a human or mechanical element to it should be taken with a grain of salt. Any of those things are subject to interference which makes them unreliable. In terms of critical thinking, this reminds me of the saying “believe half of what you see and none of what you hear”. Ultimately most of these things are only good to be taken at face value.

Do you believe that it is efficient to have the FBI and CIA lead the counter-terrorism effort at home and overseas?  What challenges and/or opportunities do you foresee?

Df 19938809

John Locked argued that our experiences can be divided into “primary” and “secondary” qualities. While primary qualities belong to the object (like mass, quantity), secondary qualities belong to us (like taste, texture, color). Hence, we do not experience the world directly: we experience representations of the external world in our minds. This position is called “representative realism.”

Answer the following two questions. Do NOT use websites; only the course e-text and whatever is found under Modules of this week. And offer substantial comments and/or questions to at least two of your fellow students. 

1. Summarize, in your own words, the distinction between primary and secondary qualities. 

2. If Locke’s representative realism is correct, than how can we know for sure that what appears in our minds is actually found in the external world?  After all, people with mental illness and those on hallucinogens perceive all kinds of things that aren’t there. How do we know that the world, including the computer that you are typing on, is not simply in our minds?

The topic is up to you as long as you choose a peer-reviewed, academic research piece.  I suggest choosing a topic that is at least in the same family as your expected dissertation topic so that you can start viewing what is out there.  There are no hard word counts or page requirements as long as you cover the basic guidelines.  You must submit original work, however,  and a paper that returns as a large percentage of copy/paste to other sources will not be accepted. 

Please use APA formatting and include the following information: Introduction/Background:  Provide context for the research article.  What led the author(s) to write the piece? What key concepts were explored? Were there weaknesses in prior research that led the author to the current hypothesis or research question? Methodology:  Describe how the data was gathered and analyzed.  What research questions or hypotheses were the researcher trying to explore? What statistical analysis was used? Study Findings and Results:  What were the major findings from the study? Were there any limitations? Conclusions:  Evaluate the article in terms of significance, research methods, readability and the implications of the results.  Does the piece lead into further study? Are there different methods you would have chosen based on what you read? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the article in terms of statistical analysis and application? (This is where a large part of the rubric is covered.)  References
