Those people thinking in critical and analytical way consider every aspects of a topic and obtain a full vision about it. They are quite aware of the possible misleading structures of internal or external factors. They can distiguish right from wrong and reach a correct decision on a subject by pursuing the necessary and accurate information. A new conversion of life perspective of awareness in all aspects may be obtained by adapting and applying critical and analytical thinking. Symposium topics are determined to hold a mirror to life from the perspective of critical and analytical thinking and show its projection to the real life.
