The symposium has two main aims. The first of these is to contribute to the understanding, dissemination and systematic formation of critical (and) analytical thinking, and the other is to raise awareness about bringing individuals' thinking skills to the level of critical analytical thinking. In order to serve these two main purposes, the symposium;
- Bringing together scientists, academics and interested people working in the field of critical and/or analytical thinking,
- Contributing to studies that enrich the critical analytical thinking literature,
- It has serious aims such as sharing the outputs of the symposium with the scientific community and all interested parties and obtaining feedback.
Why critical analytical thinking?
- Critical analytical thinking is a way of thinking that can be used both in making vital decisions and making future plans, and in building a prudent, prudent and conscientious society.
- Critical analytical thinking is the most effective tool for the individual to use his/her mind correctly and intelligently. An individual who thinks reasonably and logically knows that emotions will mislead people as much as prejudices, and that he will insist on acting as if people are right even in unfair situations, and therefore he needs the direction and guidance of science while listening to the voice of conscience. In this context, it has the feature of being a good compass in using critical analytical thinking mind, a good guide in listening to the voice of conscience, and the most up-to-date navigation in finding the lost direction.
- Critical analytical thinking is thinking that enables one to be alert about what the social media will do, which reaches millions of followers, and where it will take its followers collectively.
- Critical analytical thinking is thinking that can see the difference between two things that seem similar.
- Critical analytical thinking is the thinking that individuals need in their understanding of life, lifestyle, perspectives on events, change and transformation.
- Critical analytical thinking is thinking that opens the door to multi-dimensional thinking, lifts the veil without fear of what might come out of it, and opens the curtains that prevent seeing the big picture.
