Welcome to this little lesson on uncovering and examining our hidden assumptions.

This lesson explores the intersection between critical thinking and cognitive therapy, but because I'm a philosopher and not a psychologist, this lesson isn't designed to be a substitute for therapy. It isn't even designed to be particularly therapeutic. It's simply a little study of how we might think about thinking, and I hope you enjoy it!
