Critical Thinking
01ST OCT'22
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
We humans reason all the time, about what school to go to, what career to pursue, and even what to make for dinner. But what is reasoning, in the first place? And are there ways to do it better? In this session, we will learn what reasoning is as well as a few tools to use to improve our reasoning. Put on your thinking caps!

Prof. Michael Hatcher

Assistant Professor – Philosophy and Critical Thinking, FLAME University

Ph.D. - Philosophy | University of Southern - California

Prof. Michael Hatcher is Assistant Professor – Philosophy and Critical Thinking at FLAME University. He received his Doctorate in Philosophy from University of Southern California. He has completed MA in Philosophy from California State University of Los Angeles and BA in Philosophy from Biola University.

Prof. Michael has over three years of work experience and was associated with Valparaiso University.

He loves introducing students to the philosophical conversation and the skills required to do it effectively. He also enjoys thinking about what beliefs are, what sort of control we have over them, and under what conditions we are blameless in holding them. In addition, he takes great pleasure in applying the tools of philosophy to question religious practices – for example, the question of what ‘praying without ceasing’ consists of.
