Critical Thinking Brookfield `identifies four components of the critical thinking process. 1 Identifying and challenging assumptions: much of our thinking and behaviour is based on unexamined assumptions which we take for granted and of which we may hardly be aware. One aim of critical thinking is to unearth these hidden assumptions, to check their validity or plausibility, and to modify them if they are found wanting. 2 Creating contextual awareness: this involves becoming aware of how the social, political and historical circumstances of the times in which we live conditions our ideas and assumptions. The way we think and act is not simply a natural and inevitable given but is a product of historical and social circumstances. 3 Identifying alternatives: contextual awareness opens up the possibility of identifying or imagining different contexts in which things are done differently. Alternatives are examined to see if they can be adopted. 4 Developing reflective scepticism: awareness of alternatives encourages a sceptical attitude towards fixed and final beliefs, ultimate explanations and universal truths. Accepted ideas and practices are not regarded as inevitable, necessary or above questioning. Critical thinkers are unwilling to accept that authoritative pronouncements are automatically beyond rational justification and challenge. They believe, as Carr and Kemmis (1986) have put it, that someone who claims to know 'must convince us that their ideas survive critical examination: that they can be justified, that they can survive attempts to show them to be false, and that they are not incredible.'
