This paper argues that the tradition of Critical Pedagogy can deepen and sharpen our understanding of critical thinking as one of the manifest aims of the new Philippine educational system. Thus, it is a critical rethinking of critical thinking. The paper discusses first Critical Pedagogy. It further explains critical thinking as one of the manifest aims of education. Then, it reveals the underlying principle of this dominant understanding of critical thinking. Using the perspectives of Critical Pedagogy, the paper explains that critical thinking cannot be restricted to a one-dimensional meaning of simply being a set of logical and cognitive skills. Inherent to critical thinking is its political and social dimension.
