The Art of Critical Thinking

This week you read a number of arguments pertaining to critical thinking and intelligence analysis. Please respond to one of the below prompts:

1. Provide a critical assessment of each reading. From each work, give two examples of where you believe the authors arguments are applicable to situations in intelligence analysis and explain why.

2. Drawing on your own personal experience analyzing problems, do you believe that all “good” analysts need to behave the way the authors say they do? Why or why not?
