A new kind of critical thinking textbook

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Hi! I'm David Manley and I teach philosophy at the University of Michigan, and got frustrated with the texts available for Critical Thinking courses. So I wrote my own! The text, Reason Better: An Interdisciplinary Guide to Critical Thinking, is about acquiring a mindset of inquiry, recognizing our cognitive biases, and adjusting our beliefs to match the strength of the evidence. You can check it out here. (Link won't work on a mobile phone. Use the “Enter as Guest” button on the right: no need for an account to check it out.)

I tried to include only the most useful skills from the toolkits of philosophy, cognitive psychology, and behavioral economics. The result is a text that:

  • emphasizes acquiring a mindset that avoids systematic error, rather than persuading others.
  • focuses on the logic of probability and decisions more than on the logic of deduction.
  • offers a unified picture of how evidence works in statistical, causal, and best-explanation inferences—rather than treating them as unrelated.

The unified account of evidence I offer is a broadly Bayesian one, but there aren’t any daunting theorems. (Without knowing it, students are taught to use a gentle form of the Bayes factor to measure the strength of evidence and to update.) It’s also shown how this framework illuminates aspects of the scientific method, such as the proper design of experiments.

I’m happy to report that there’s no need to accept the false choice between a narrow Intro to Logic course and a remedial Critical Thinking course. The course at Michigan that uses this text– at the moment taught by the amazing Anna Edmonds–is rigorous but immensely practical. Students come away with a sense of how to weigh the strength of evidence for claims, and adjust their beliefs accordingly.

I’ve been hesitant to turn to a traditional publisher, because I like the TopHat platform so much:

  • There are embedded questions in each section that are auto-graded and ensure the students are doing the readings.
  • It offers a really nice UI for students with search and note-taking capabilities, and they can read the text and answer questions on any device.
  • It’s pretty cheap: TopHat charges $35 plus a $10 platform fee if the student isn’t using TopHat already.
  • Most importantly, it's very flexible: any prof who assigns the text can modify it it. Want the students to skip a section? Just cut it out. Don’t like the wording of a question? Just change it. It’s hard to overestimate how useful this is in a text.

The text is ready for use right now, but I’ll be continuing to improve it, so I’d be very happy to get any feedback. There is an anonymous feedback form in the text itself that anyone can use. For the next month or so I’ll be working on an additional chapter called “Sources”, about social epistemology in a world of information overload: navigating science reporting, expertise, consensus, conformity, polarization, and conditions for skilled intuition.

Will my Masters (BPhil) not being funded hurt my chances for graduate school applications?

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I got accepted to the BPhil, but haven't been offered any funding yet. How important for graduate school applications is it to have had funding in you masters (if you did one)? As the BPhil is notoriously terribly funded, I assume this won't be a big deal, right?

How do you impart the knowledge & benefits you gain from academic philosophy onto your family, friends and others you care about?

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I'm sure a large portion of us study philosophy because of the benefits we realise from it. My question is directed toward those who have tried to pass this knowledge onto those they care about. Mainly, how have you found success in passing on knowledge to others who may not necessarily have any interest in academic philosophy?

Any anecdotal success stories would be appreciated and addressing the below points would be appreciated even further:

- Medium used (discussion, books, philosophers, videos, courses etc.)

- Depth/difficulty of knowledge passed on (from understanding the trolley problem to reading the full works of Hegel)

- Did this result in a further pursuit of philosophy on their end, or stop there?

Applause after academic talks

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Why do people sometimes applaud by clapping their hands after presentations / talks, and other times snap their fingers or knock on the table? Is one more socially acceptable / preferable?

Pursuing a PhD with a physics MSc

<!-- SC_OFF -->


Some background about me:
I have an engineering/physics dual BSc+ Physics MSc.
Since young age I've been a philosophy fan, mostly metaphysics (one of the reasons I've studied physics).
I work in the AI field, and recently enrolled to an MA in philosophy in my country.
I am just in the beginning of the MA, and it will take me 3 years to finish (as I lack a BA) and I do it in parallel to full time job.

I have have published 3 peer reviewed papers in the applied physics domain. Also 1 peer reviewed paper in applied machine learning(related to my work). And in philosophy I have written two papers that are now in peer review process. (1 of them hopefully will have a solid impact as it is related to the meta-problem of consciousnesses)

My aim:

I would like to get into a PhD program in philosophy in the UK, hopefully the best one I can get into. As from everything that I've done, philosophy is my biggest passion.

But, I won't be able to apply until I have graduated from my MA. And I am not as young as your average PhD student (I'm in my early 30's) I don't want to wait 3 years.

So my question:

How can I apply earlier? From all I've seen I need to have either MA or a BA in philosophy. (in the UK)

Can I apply some how based on my publications?

Any other ideas?

Good philosophy summer courses for those currently doing their undergrad in it at a fairly good university (UK)?

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I was wondering if there were any specific recommended courses, I see a lot of the Oxford ones but I'm struggling to figure out which would be best for my age + skill range- i.e someone who's just about to finish their second year in philosophy and has a fair bit of understanding and passion (for someone at an undergraduate level).

I was wondering if anyone could offer any tips on good summer school programs in the UK which work well with where I'm currently at, thanks.

Best academic programs for Critical Theory

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I'm considering in checking out any possibly MA/PHD programs that specialize in critical theory. I wanted to know of any suggestions (other than the New School since I really doubt I'll get any funding from them).

Also, is specializing in CT bad in terms of job prospects for philosophers?

The Cambridge Habermas Lexicon

The Cambridge Habermas Lexicon

Ed. by Amy Allen & Eduardo Mendieta

(Cambridge University Press, 2019)

850 pages

From the Preface

The Cambridge Habermas Lexicon is intended to be the “go to,” indispensable, and leading research tool for scholars, students, and general readers interested in the work of Jürgen Habermas. It is without doubt the most up-to-date resource on Habermas’s by now massive oeuvre, which spans nearly seven decades of philosophical and intellectual productivity. The Lexicon also aims to be an important bibliographical resource for those trying to make sense of the impact and reception of Habermas’s thought in twentieth- and early twenty-first-century European, North Atlantic, and global contexts. The editors are particularly honored and proud to include some of the top Habermas scholars from across the world. Habermas’s work has had a global reception, and the Lexicon aims to reflect this fact.

Each entry aims to present the concept, figure, or philosopheme in question in a language that is thoroughly researched yet jargon-free, lucid, and comprehensive.

Neues Buch: "Habermas und die Religion" (2. Auflage)

Habermas und die Religion (2. Auflage)

Hrsg. von Klaus Viertbauer & Franz Gruber

(Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft WBG, 2019)


Seit Ende der 1980er-Jahre öffnet Habermas sich langsam dem Dialog mit akademischen Vertretern der Religion. Doch nimmt er Religion nicht einfach als eine soziologische Kategorie wahr, sondern tritt in einen tiefgreifenden Austausch mit Theologen und Religionsphilosophen. 

Der Band analysiert das Verhältnis von Habermas zur Religion erstmals umfassend und bestimmt es nicht nur in seiner historisch-genealogischen Tiefe, sondern ordnet es auch in der gegenwärtigen Diskurslandschaft ein.

Für die vorliegende 2. Auflage wurde der Band durchgesehen und erweitert - so greift er nun auch die Rezeption der Religionsphilosophie Hegels auf und behandelt das aktuelle Thema der Bioethik.
