Thinking for Yourself

Atsushi Seike

Atsushi Seike (President, Keio University)

We are now living in a time of great changes. These changes such as global warming, an aging population, intensifying global market competition, and an ever - expanding cyberspace are fundamentally transforming the whole structure of the society we live in. In such a time of great changes, it becomes more and more difficult for us to consider things and solve problems as if they are simply extensions of the past.

What is needed here is the ability to understand a new situation and take appropriate action based on this understanding. In other words, the ability to think for yourself will be in greater demand. More specifically, the ability to think for yourself is the process of identifying an issue, explaining the issue, verifying the explanation to determine whether it holds, and if the explanation does indeed hold, putting it into action to form solutions. This is the methodology of learning — of identifying an unsolved problem, constructing a hypothesis that logically explains the problem, and testing the hypothesis through various scientific methods to reach a conclusion.
