“If you are willing to be open-minded, accept that reasonable probabilities rather than absolute certainties are the best you can get in many of the things that matter, and hold your most precious beliefs tentatively (always being willing to reconsider your beliefs and the reasons that led you to them), then there is hope that you will overcome some of the hindrances to critical thinking at least some of the time.”—Chapter 9
In ‘Unnatural Acts’ Robert Carroll offers up many cogent arguments in favor of critical thinking, skepticism and the scientific approach. Although many of his premises are tough to wrap one’s head around; those with which I was able to grapple and grasp were all valuable.
Recommendation: But for the flagrant flaunting of the author’s anti-Republican biases, ‘Unnatural Acts’ would have been a five-star read for me.
“If one’s worldview is packed with nonsense and falsehoods, there is little hope that one can think critically about most things.”—Chaper 3
