Assignment 1: The Significance of Context
Consider the accumulated sources of error and the different factors affecting our reasoning styles. For this assignment, focus on a typical setting in your own profession.
How does context affect your ability to conduct critical thinking and the ability of your colleagues to reason with you?
As you answer the question, briefly describe a setting in which a discussion might occur in your profession, either an imagined situation or one you have experienced. Consider the factors in that setting that might serve as sources of error or might influence you or your colleagues as you reason and describe at least four of those factors.
