Thinking as a Science

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 161 reviews)

Written in a conversational style that will appeal to the younger person as well as seasoned professional, "Thinking as a Science" is timeless classic. Through eleven chapters, the last being a descriptive, annotated bibliography, Henry Hazlitt systematically takes the step-by-step on the process of introducing logic and context into the thinking process. The rather long chapter on "Reading and Thinking" clarifies several notions on where one needs to understand where mere knowledge acquisition ends and using reading the stimulate thinking begins.

For an individual who was largely self taught, Hazlitt's contribution to the process of thinking is a must-read.(Summary by Chiquito Crasto) (4 hr 37 min)

Thanks a lot for this gift. I've felt part of the problems for years but did not took the time to think or find an answer. Allways reading something else or thinking about other problems.

Does not play.

Probably an amazing book, talks in detail about something of utmost importance, so WHY IS IT BROKEN?
