Prof. Zhang Jianjun from the Department of Philosophy of Nanjing University, Prof. Yang Wujin from the School of Philosophy of Renmin University of China, and Prof. Xie Xian from the Department of Philosophy of Sun Yat-sen University delivered keynote speeches on "The Relationship between Logic and Critical Thinking from the Study of Logical Paradoxes", "The Logic of Mohism and Critical Thinking" and "Teaching Logic and Cultivating Argumentation Skills". "Logic Teaching and Cultivation of Argumentation Skills". More than twenty experts and scholars exchanged and discussed the understanding of critical thinking, comparison and application of critical thinking, teaching and research of logic and critical thinking in primary and secondary schools and universities, and the cultivation and improvement of critical thinking and innovative thinking ability.

The establishment of the Critical Thinking Committee of the Chinese Society of Logic will promote the popularization and development of critical thinking research and teaching in China, further study the theory and methodology of critical thinking, explore the application of critical thinking in education and teaching, scientific research, and practice, and enhance the national ability of logic and critical thinking as well as the ability of innovative thinking, so as to contribute to the modernization of the Chinese style and the development of human civilization.
