"Stress: The only way to beat it, is to love it a little."
Understanding critical thinking is a life long strategy. The purpose of this course is not only to familiarize students with the fundamental concepts of critical thinking, but to also provide a systematic approach to its processes and components. Through readings, discussions, and written assignments, emphasis will be placed on application in the context of traditional values, personal non-conformity, and cultural diversity.
Perhaps no decade in American history is so easily labeled yet so often misunderstood as the 1960s. The United States faced global crises such as the U-2 Incident, the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Vietnam War. With constant international tension, American homeland offered no relief. The assassinations of JFK, MLK, and RFK, along with a sour blend of Civil Rights riots and peaceful “hippie” demonstrations, added to the tumultuous times. The 1960s, more than any other decade in American history, forged the true identity of the American character and sharpened the definition of American Freedom.
