Description: Everyone likes to think that he or she is a rational person and that his or her ideas are well-grounded in rationality. But we don’t often think about what exactly it means to be rational or reasonable, or for our ideas to be characterized that way. First paradoxical observation: to be rational doesn’t necessarily mean to be right. Second paradoxical observation: to arrive at a rational position involves taking a risk that one’s preconceptions are wrong alongside a commitment to and orientation toward a Truth that may be inherently elusive. In this workshop, we’ll discuss and explore the various shades of meaning related to the idea of rationality and the way it is expressed in the Drexel Student Learning Priority associated with “Creative and Critical Thinking."

You will leave the session with a more focused understanding of the meaning of “rationality,” how creative and critical thinking are designed to help you develop and exercise it, and how working toward these educational goals will enhance your life prospects both in your career and as a human being.
