Abstract

Despite the existence of various interpretations, Critical Thinking is generally acknowledged as a process utilized to identify and resolve problems, as well as the ability to assess a solution based on evidence. Many authors commonly agree that Critical Thinking is an Educational Objective or even an Art, complete with its own goals, principles, and strategies: itinvolves the skill of formulating coherent and logical judgments through the interpretation, comprehension, application, and synthesis of evidence acquired through observation, reading, and experimentation. However, what truly makes it indispensable for personal development and student education is its contribution to decision-making. Thus, critical thinking is rational and reflective thinking focused on determining what to believe or do. In this sense, it can be distilled down to a set of skills that enable the most objective analysis of the collected information, facilitating its evaluation and interpretation to arrive at clear and reproducible conclusions
