Deciding advantageously before knowing the advantageous strategy Bechara, Antoine;Damasio, Hanna;Tranel, Daniel;Damasio, Antonio R Science; Feb 28, 1997; 275, 5304; ProQuest pg. 1293 Reproduced with permission of the copyright owner.

Instructions The assigned article by Bechara, Damasio, Tranel, and Damasio (1997) was a germinal contribution in the exploration of "thinking without explicitly thinking." For our assignment, you will compare the approach of critical thinking (as learned so far in this course) with the idea of thinking without explicitly thinking proposed in Bechara et al. (1997). Bechara, A., Damasio, H., Tranel, D., & Damasio, A. R. (1997). Deciding advantageously before knowing the advantageous strategy. Science, 275(5304), 1293-1295. 1. Summarize the article (What is the purpose of the experiment? Who are the participants? What is measured, How is that "what" measured? What are the Findings & Conclusions?) 2. Contrast the main idea of that article with the critical thinking approaches we have learned in the first two modules in this course. Compare and contrast the two divergent ways to process information in each source. For example, from the textbook: clarifying and analyzing information vs. from the article: allowing nonconscious bias be your guide. You will contrast the nonconscious thinking approaches discussed in article with the core critical thinking skills discussed in the text (see page 34 of the textbook). As indicated in the example above, please select a minimum of two core critical thinking skills to contrast with the nonconscious thinking approaches evidenced in the study discussed in the assigned article. Some examples are analysis, evaluation, explanation, self-regulation, or interpretation I would definitely look over the table provided on page 34 of chapter 2 4. How would you reconcile the two approaches in your quest to become a strong critical thinker? Is there value to each of the information processing methods (the strategy described of thinking without explicitly thinking discussed in the article and the critical thinking strategies described in the text); what is the value? 5. Cite at least one other scholarly article along with Bechara et al. (1997) and the textbook (Facione & Gittens, 2015). Hint: Feel free to considering using one of the sources cited in the article. The references cited at the end of the article provide links to other sources cited in the assigned article. You may follow these links to other articles, review these articles, and use these sources to inform your paper. 6. Be mindful of grammar and writing mechanics. The paper should be a minimum of 800 words (this word count DOES NOT include your reference section or cover page), and meet the standards of APA style. You may find the attached template to be helpful in constructing an APA-styled paper. REVIEW to guide to writing a psychology paper provided in the link above this assignment. Accordingly, DO NOT write in the 1st or 2nd person (i.e., no "I", "We", "You", etc.) - formal writing in completed in the 3rd person. Third-person point of view uses proper nouns (such as given name, "John Smith") or nouns (such as researchers, participants, one, etc.) or pronouns (such as "they").In general, formal academic writing discourages the use of first or second person as it makes writing present as less objective.
