In this assignment, you will examine the importance of scientific methods and critical thinking in research.
Using the Internet, research the following:
In 2007, a world famous violinist, Josh Bell, whose ticket prices averaged $100 each in a concert in Boston, played a $3.5 million handcrafted violin posing like a street musician in a Washington D.C. metro station. This experiment was done to note how many people would stop and listen to his beautiful performance. He made a mere $32 that day. The experiment concluded that very few people stop to appreciate the good things in their daily life.
Based on your research and the scenario, discuss the following about the methodology used:
Scientific thought involves critical thinking. Defining critical thinking is not as easy as it seems. Critical thinking is often referred to as thinking of unique ways of experimenting.
Media often takes advantage of such experiments. They could report experiments irresponsibly to make it saleable. How can the above experiment be presented irresponsibly?
