Date of Completion
Open Access Capstone
Master of Arts (MA)
My experiences with the Critical and Creative Thinking program have given me time to articulate and reflect on how creative, critical and moral thinking relate to a healthy and balanced mind. This paper explores each of these three thinking styles individually through reflection and literature review, and then combines them into coherent pictures like a biphasic cyclical machine and a garden of components to be cultivated. I propose that by promoting and balancing creative, critical and moral thinking, we can develop healthy and balanced cognition for both ourselves as individuals, and as groups.
