Dr. Schick received his B.A. from Harvard and his PhD in Philosophy from Brown University. He is a Professor of Philosophy at Pennsylvania’s Muhlenberg College while serving as the Director of the Muhlenberg Scholars Program. He has a place on the editorial board of the philosophy journal Philo and has published repeatedly on the nature of knowledge, reality, and value. His main interests include the philosophy of mind and science plus biomedical ethics. He has authored or co-authored three books: Doing Philosophy: An Introduction Through Thought Experiments; Readings In The Philosophy of Science: From Positivism to Postmodernism; and How to Think About Weird Things: Critical Thinking for a New Age. This last book, How to Think About Weird Things, is considered required reading by many when what is sought is a formalized philosophical approach to critical thinking. We asked Dr. Schick to join us on this very subject. The resulting discussion, we’re sure, will help the listener be a better critical thinker while helping to better justify a reliance on critical thinking to others with questions. Listen in!
