10th ECRC International Scientific Conference in Social Sciences and Humanities "Knowledge and Critical Thinking are Twins"

10th ECRC International Scientific Conference in Social Sciences and Humanities

(Knowledge and Critical Thinking are Twins)

Istanbul - Turkey

29-30/ 10 / 2019

General Introduction

ECRC organizes its 10th ECRC International Scientific Conference in Social Sciences and Humanities. Under the logo “Knowledge and Critical Thinking are Twins” the conference addresses diverse topics in social sciences and humanities. With this logo (i.e., “Knowledge and Critical Thinking are Twins”) we mean knowledge is not considered a requirement and a target unless it undergoes critical thinking. On the same line of argumentation, critical thinking that does not produce knowledge is a thinking wasteland. Whether discussing emerging topics or to revisiting recurring topics, all topics would be approached through critical thinking approach. This conference is an opportunity for researchers and others to continue the outcomes of the previous conferences and to exchange ideas in a way to enhance the concept scientific community. In addition, the logo of this conference evokes the appropriate use of past or recent topics in scientific research that support the concept of integration in the fields of humanities and social sciences.
