PHL 458 Week 1 DQ 1
  • Week 1 DQ 1
  • Neurophysiologist research suggests that human
    thinking has two distinct phases which are
    complementary in making decisions or solving
    problems. The first, or production phase, is
    associated with our creative thinking- seeing the
    familiar in a novel way, generating a variety of
    ideas, and a willingness to take imaginative
    risks the second, or judgment phase, kicks in
    our critical thinking, as the mind goes to work
    evaluating, distinguishing fact and evidence from
    sense impression, and running the tests of logic
    to apply what has been produced (Ruggiero, 2009,
    pp. 7-8). Chapter 1 The Brain Mind at Work

PHL 458 Week 1 DQ 2
  • Week 1 DQ 2
  • Debating moral questions is important as we seek
    to solve problems or face complex issues in life.
    Our text mentions four working principles, as we
    evaluate the obligations, ideals, consequences
    and circumstances in a situation (Ruggiero, 2009,
    pp. 41-42). Chapter 2 The Basis of Moral
    Judgment Select ONE of the cases included in
    our text on pages 46-47 Application 2.6 at end
    of CH 2, using the following criteria If your
    last name starts with AJ, you are assigned Case
    A. If your last name starts with KR, you are
    assigned Case B. If your last name starts with
    SZ, you are assigned Case C.

PHL 458 Week 1 DQ 3
  • Week 1 DQ 3
  • Some of the most innovative people were branded
    by their contemporaries as slow learners (Winston
    Churchill), clumsy (Martha Graham), stupid
    (Thomas Edison), or unimpressive (Albert
    Einstein). Yet these individuals persisted in
    developing their creative and critical thinking
    abilities, refusing to define themselves by other
    peoples assessments.

6
PHL 458 Week 1 Individual Assignment Critical and
Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays (2
Papers)
  • This Tutorial contains 2 Different Papers Write
    150 to 200 words on each of the following topics
    Describe a situation of public interest in which
    critical and/or creative thought could have been
    used for a better outcome. Describe why it is
    important to think critically and creatively in
    similar situations. Define free will, truth,
    knowledge, and opinion. Explain how we use them
    to form thoughts. What role does each play in
    critically assessing situations? Identify three
    hindrances to the critical thinking process.
    Determine methods for overcoming these
    hindrances. Identify a time in which you
    experienced a hindrance in critical thinking.

7
PHL 458 Week 1 Individual Assignment Critical
Thinking and Society Presentation
  • Present on each of the following topics with a
    slide or two/bullet
  • Describe a situation in which critical and
    creative thought could have been used for a
    better outcome. This could be a personal or
    societal problem or issue. Describe why it is
    important to think critically and creatively in
    similar situations (2 slides).
  • Define free will, truth, knowledge, and opinion.
    Explain how we use them to form thoughts, and how
    they may bear on your problem or issue (4
    slides).
  • Identify three hindrances to the
    critical/creative thinking process. Determine
    methods for overcoming these hindrances. Identify
    a hindrance in critical or creative thinking
    that affected youre solution or approach to the
    problem or issue here. Describe a method you
    could use to overcome the hindrances (3 or 4
    slides).

PHL 458 Week 2 DQ 1
  • Week 2 DQ 1
  • Looking over a list of the worlds inventions is
    in itself a good reminder that we each stand on
    the shoulders of those who have gone before us.
    It also brings to mind the fact that we take a
    lot for granted. Doing this exercise we may even
    come to think that all the worlds inventions are
    already here and in use. What an interesting
    creativity-blocker that could be! Then delving
    into the mind of any inventor exposes us to the
    very creative process itself, to the ways
    critical thinking shaped original ideas, and to
    the interesting steps that brought an innovative
    idea to market.

9
PHL 458 Week 2 DQ 2
  • Week 2 DQ 2
  • This Discussion Question will invite each of us
    to borrow from a Famous Thinker. Select any ONE
    Thinker from our Electronic Reserve Readings list
    who effected social change. Read the article(s)
    for that Thinker, and in a Post of 250 to 300
    words, respond to the following questions
  • 2.1 Describe some strategies employed by your
    famous thinker to activate his or her
    imagination, such as uncommon responses, free
    association, analogy, unusual combinations,
    visualization, pro and con arguments, and
    relevant scenarios.

10
PHL 458 Week 2 DQ 3
  • Week 2 DQ 3
  • This Discussion Question will invite each of us
    to do a Controversial Issues Brainstorming
    session. Note that our text makes a key
    distinction between a problem and an issue, both
    of which call us to use our creative and critical
    thinking skills, to come up with innovative
    solutions or novel approaches. Inventors and
    scientists focus more on problems, while
    politicians, parents and leaders address human
    issues.
  • Select ONE of the following issues and do a quick
    Internet search for some background on it
  • The fast-food industrys relation to obesity
  • Granting rights to illegal immigrants

11
PHL 458 Week 2 Individual Assignment Creative
Spark Talk Analysis
  • Review the entire list of talks on the "Creative
    Spark" TED channel. Select one talk that is of
    interest to you and watch it in its entire
    length. Write a 700- to 1,050-word summary of the
    salient points made in the talk and its
    supporting details that catch your interest.
    Indicate the name and position of the speaker and
    the location and year of the talk in your
    summary. Conclude your summary with a reflection
    of the following How the talk's content
    illuminates some of the stages of creativity How
    the topic of the talk relates to the concepts of
    imagination and curiosity How some of the points
    made in the talk might apply to your personal
    experience and benefit society as a whole Format
    your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

12
PHL 458 Week 2 Individual Assignment Solve a
Problem Journal
  • Create a Solution Journal in which you use the
    creative process to solve a problem with which
    you have experience. Include the following
  • Describe each stage in the creative process using
    Ch. 5 of your text (Entry 1).
  • Search for a personal challenge. Explain how you
    used the techniques to develop curiosity in your
    search (see Ch. 6) (Entry 2).

13
PHL 458 Week 2 Team Assignment Think Different
Exercise
  • In 1997, Apple, Inc. supported its "Think
    Different" marketing campaign with a 1-minute
    commercial featuring black-and-white footage of
    17 iconic 20th-century personalities. The
    commercial was conceptualized by the Los
    Angeles-based advertising agency TBWA/Chiat/Day.
    Find a copy of this commercial, also known as the
    "Crazy Ones" commercial, on the Internet and
    watch it. Identify the 17 individuals shown in
    the background and, as a team, discuss the
    following questions What did each of the
    individuals contribute to the world?

14
PHL 458 Week 3 DQ 1
  • Week 3 DQ 1
  • Each of us makes assumptions continually in a
    typical day, and many of them are hidden. Clearly
    this is an important potential obstacle of clear
    or critical thinking. Stephen Covey recognized
    this when he said, We simply assume that the way
    we see things is the way they really are or the
    way they should be. And our attitudes and
    behaviors grow out of these (ThinkExist.com).
    Marshall McLuhan called us to an ongoing review
    of our assumptions Most of our assumptions have
    outlived their usefulness (ThinkExist.com).

15
PHL 458 Week 3 DQ 2
  • Week 3 DQ 2
  • Chapter 11 in our text is about solving problems
    we encounter in our personal, professional or
    vocational lives. Most of us can call up a
    problem that can be worked on from either of
    these domains, fairly easy. Practice in
    problem-solving is also a major goal of this
    course. Select one problem that is current or as
    recent as possible for you in one of these areas
    (or if you cannot come up with one, select one
    problem covered in Chapter 11), and in a post of
    200 to 250 words, respond to the following
    questions

16
PHL 458 Week 3 DQ 3
  • Week 3 DQ 3
  • Chapter 12 in our text helps us critically think
    through arguments and issues we may face in our
    lives. Errors may affect the truth of the issue,
    they may affect the validity of a premise or
    conclusion, or a hidden premise that may
    side-track a solution. Dealing with simple or
    complex arguments takes practice.
  • Select ONE of the Applications on pp. 222-224,
    and practice your creative and critical skills by
    responding to the following questions, for that
    Application
  • Share the Application you selected. If you think
    it is a complex argument, identify the parts, and
    state whether you think there is a hidden premise
    implied

17
PHL 458 Week 3 Individual Assignment Evaluating
Truth and Validity Exercise
  • Select three of the scenarios in the Applications
    list 12.2 (a.-y.) at the end of Ch. 12 in The Art
    of Thinking. Apply the following in 350 to 500
    words for each scenario Evaluate each argument,
    using the 4-step process described on p. 218,
    regarding soundness of reasoning (truth and
    validity). Explain your assessment and add
    alternative argumentation where necessary. Format
    your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

18
PHL 458 Week 3 Individual Assignment Refining
Solutions Visual Organizer
  • Most great solutions to problems begin with some
    initial flaws. Quality solutions arise by
    refining ideas. Refine your solution to the
    problem defined in your Week Two Individual

23
PHL 458 Week 4 DQ 3
  • Week 4 DQ 3
  • 3.1 The history of philosophy is full of minor
    and major philosophers who have used deductive
    logic to address the tough perennial questions of
    life related to metaphysics (what is real),
    epistemology (what is true), and ethics (what is
    the good life). Some of the issues they have
    responded to have been quite esoteric, such as
    where or how the human brain connects with the
    mind and thinking process (Plato Descartes).
    Many of the early philosophers tried to explain
    how life changes, but also maintains some
    continuity (Pythagoras Socrates). Others
    wrestled with the question of how to create and
    administer a just society (Kant Rawls). Some
    have explored the interesting nature of being,
    and how to be true to that essential nature
    (Spinoza Heidegger).
