Thought

Just as the modern world uses ‘science’ to describe any idea it likes (whether or not it is or could be justified by the scientific method) so it uses ‘prejudice’ to describe any idea it doesn’t like (even when the person who holds it is speaking from experience and the accuser is speaking from preconceptions).

One thought on “Thought

  1. Someone mentioned that Critical Theory involves uncritical acceptance of anything that supports your theory, and refusal to accept anything that doesn’t. I suspect that this colors what is euphemistically called critical thinking as well.
