"The educational purpose of all learning, whether of facts, techniques, or theories, is that what is learnt should form the basis of thinking. It is from the thinking more than the learning that intellectual development proceeds. In science two different kinds of thinking are possible. The first we may call creative thinking, the second critical thinking … Thinking is not a popular occupation; it is difficult enough to force oneself to think let alone encourage others to do the same. We all hope to acquire principles cheaply whereby our task of sorting things out may be made easy, rather than face the hard work involved in reaching decisions for ourselves." - R.A.R. Tricker (1960)
