Abstract
This research is a conceptual exploration of the vernacular that surrounds the concept of critical thinking. Metaphor is engaged as a primer, and through this imagery, the intellectual resources of critical thinking are explicated as tools of learning, understanding, and interpreting. Carrying the metaphor forward, these tools are wielded as applications for each of the respective fields of education, philosophy, and sociology. Social systems relating to epistemology and agency are examined relative to the interplay with quality of thinking critically. In efforts to apply the resources of critical thinking outlined, the tools will be wielded in an analysis of two notions of socially constructed aspects of self: age and sex.
