Abstract :This review article was to identify and define the concepts of critical thinking so that they could be used adequately in empirical studies conducted in the fields related to psychology. Among various definition models, a focus was given to the seven most-quoted researchers in social science literature. After reviewing these researchers' concepts, the differences among the major concepts were clarified by highlighting additional aspects of a logicist perspective, the most conservative and narrow definition of critical thinking. In broader definitions, four aspects were included such as:(1)Creativity,(2)empathy and care,(3)domain specificity, and(4)emphasis on disposition, process, or activity. The latter part of analyses was carried out taking into consideration four aspects of critical thinking concepts:targets, characteristics, skills, and dispositions. Through these analyses a fundamental image of critical thinking was clarified. The results of the review were discussed focusing on discrepancies among the concepts of critical thinking that were often seen in empirical studies in fields related to psychology.
