Overview: Critical Thinking

If we want to live in reality as good as we can and not in self-made bubbles, then we need critical thinking skills to help us detect logical fallacies.

Everything else in critical thinking is experience in detecting the many different logical fallacies that can make up unreliable arguments. To develop the discernment needed for distinguishing complicated fallacies from complicated reliable models requires a lifetime of learning.
