To study well and learn any subject is to learn how to think.
Learning to think is to:
raise vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely.
gather and assess information, using ideas to interpret that information insightfully.
come to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards.
recognize and assess different points of view and the assumptions, implications, and practical consequences of that perspective.
communicate effectively with others using the language of the discipline and that of educated public discourse.
relate what one is learning in a subject to other subjects and to what is significant in human life.
