Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The Course Critical Thinking aims to provide in an innovative manner the methodological tools necessary to reason and argue in a sound way under conditions of risk and uncertainty in science and technology. The tools used will be those belonging to logic, philosophy, argumentation, and psychology of thought applied to uncertain reasoning. The course contents will be presented and discussed interactively with the students. The Course is intended to give students a chance to critically reflect on cultural, social, and ethical impacts of science and technology.

Modalità di valutazione

An individual final essay 

Students are required to develop an argumentative thesis in a written essay in which the specific claims are justified by the use of critical thinking and the relevant literature. 

Students are required to read and carefully study the suggested bibliography and to apply it to case-studies.

Collective presentations

Students are encouraged to give collective presentations in order to reduce the length of the individual final essay (this option is available only for some study programs). All detailed information and the pdfs of the scientific papers that we will be used will be made available on BeeP (https://beep.metid.polimi.it/welcome), the portal supporting the activities of faculty and students of Politecnico di Milano. 

The individual final essay will be evaluated considering the following criteria:

1) originality of the main thesis

2) knowledge of the scientific and technological background

3) argumentative skills

4) ability to integrate technical knowledge with critical reflection

5) compliance with academic standards
