Organization of knowledge in rich and diverse fields has been possible by the objective analysis of facts based on logic, reason and experimentation. Verificationism has been an independent criterion to any method of inquiry and this has been admitted to our senses. It is not just limited to ideologies but to our daily practices and behaviors. An important point to note is that science isn’t just the mechanistic formulation of laws and theorems; it is also the intellectual domain where a rational method of inquiry is sought out based on objective analysis of facts. We have to be honest by thinking critically and accepting science as the primary ingredient of all development ranging from the cognitive domain of an individual to the infrastructural development of the world.
But science and critical thinking seem to have been heavily missed in public policy making. Making plans is not just enough; there has to be proper understanding of the problem, materialization of goals and methodologies in the first place. As we can see, most of the highly prioritized goals like alleviation of poverty, birth control, stabilization of peace are never really achieved despite global coherent interests and efforts. What it encourages us is to revisit the problems by incorporating critical thinking into our methodologies for effective operationism.
