Le MOOC sera consacré à l’étude de la pensée critique. Les enjeux de cette dernière sont déterminants pour les sociétés contemporaines. On répète qu’il faut lutter contre les préjugés, l’obscurantisme voire le fanatisme. Mais on n’apprend pas à penser, à critiquer les opinions reçues, à ne les accepter qu’après un travail personnel de réflexion et d’examen. Si bien que, face à des thèses simplificatrices, complotistes, manichéennes, nous sommes souvent dépourvus de ressources parce que nous n’avons pas véritablement appris à penser et à argumenter.
