The present article addresses the question of whether, and to what extent, critical thinking should make attunement to current social and political landscapes central to its practice.

The idea that critical thinking is a desideratum within the educational system has never been controversial, though it is one that is felt as more pressing than ever in our time. Recent years have, as such, seen a significant number of publications that address important aspects of the question of critical thinking and education (Nussbaum, 2010; Fa...

In this regard, I will be drawing especially on th...
