Details

It's a bit odd when the seemingly obvious turns out to not be obvious or the seemingly odd turns out to be obvious For example, kindness and fondness seem the same but they're not (which is a bit odd) and immaterial entities are more real than material entities (which seems odd but maybe obvious upon reflection). As critical thinking can take many forms, pointing out oddities in the ordinary or the ordinary in the odd is one way to get students to think more critically about the world. One type of critical thinking in philosophy aims to draw such distinctions in order to bring the background of life into the foreground and thus consider what such critical thinking means for how one lives one's life. 
Learning Outcome? To consider how philosophy thematizes what other Humanities and STEM disciplines do in practice.
