    Houdini among the spirits: A lesson in critical thinking.Guilherme Brambatti Guzzo - 2019 - Think 18 (52):47-58.
    In spite of the widespread recognition of critical thinking as an elementary aim of education, and an important tool for people to evaluate information and make reasonable decisions in their daily lives, to think critically is a difficult task.
