This book is designed around the assumption that ‘thinking’ is the core competency of the graduate, more specifically, ‘applied critique’. This means an ability to critique contemporary problems systematically and constructively, using multiple stances methodically. This is a core competency, which can later be thoughtfully evolved through experience in the workplace. Applied critique is knowledge that stands the test of time by providing the generic skill to evaluate any particular problem, technique, fad or common- sense solution that comes over the horizon, whether at home, at work or in your community. Graduation means developing this competency to critique tomorrow’s problems constructively. This book aims to help with this task.
