I’m studying for my Philosophy class and need an explanation.
For this week’s journal assignment, choose ONE of the following questions to respond to in 300 words, about 2-3 paragraphs (or a full page, double-spaced):
- What is the relation between knowledge and belief? Can we have false knowledge? What about false beliefs? Explain the role of evidence in your response. When can we be said to have knowledge?
- Think of a time when your social expectations led you to misjudge a person or the situation. Discuss strategies for improving your critical thinking skills so that this is less likely to happen in the future. Explain how social errors and biases impede critical thinking.
- The ability to evaluate information is a crucial skill for critical thinking. Explain the five criteria from pg. 111 in our text and why they are important when making informed decisions. Provide a url to an online article that you believe lacks proper credibility. Explain why you think the article is problematic.
*Please include which number you are responding to in your submission*
