The Paris Institute for Critical Thinking (PICT) has been featured in Premier, a digital magazine published out of the Philippines. The feature includes a five-page interview with PICT executive director Evrim Emir-Sayers.
In the interview, Evrim offers fresh perspectives on the history and goals of PICT, as well as tackling a diversity of topics such as social media, online teaching, and the current state of higher education. Explaining PICT’s focus on the humanities, Evrim says that “the humanities are all about a rigorous but open-ended engagement with subjects such as philosophy or art, subjects in which questions rarely have a final answer. The humanities are all about the process of thinking rather than its outcome. The humanities have the power to unite people, bring the most diverse groups of people together around questions and issues that are of passionate interest to us all as human beings. All this is why the humanities are the natural home of critical thinking.”
