From the 21st to the 25th of October, 2019, the IV International Seminar on Critical Thinking will be held, organized by the Universidad Veracruzana (Xalapa, Mexico), with the support of several universities. The challenges of formation are enormous, of great significance and, therefore, difficult to solve. The coordination of all parties involved in the learning process is needed for its change and substantial improvement. Institutions are required to modify their objectives and, above all, to increase the resources allocated to them. On the part of the teachers it is convenient that they increase their awareness about other ways of understanding their activity. But, and that is what matters most, it is necessary that teachers and students work differently, and not in a occasional manner, but in a generalized way. It is precisely in the daily action aimed at improving learning that critical thinking (PC) has some things to say, due to the way of approaching and executing the essential processes of knowledge acquisition. These should always be a double nature, cognitive and non-cognitive, and both should play their roles on the board of best knowledge. CT can address the challenges of the 21st century society because it has a conception and a methodology that has improved even efficient performance, making it effective. In this sense, learning, as a whole, should have within its functions to stimulate this way of behaving, in order to form people to significantly transform our society for the common good. With this objective in mind, during these days, a set of conferences, communications, and various workshops will be held by renowned professionals from different areas of CT. These days will be not only an opportunity to learn about the advances that have occurred in recent years in this discipline, but also an opportunity to enrich the applied work of different professionals. The endorsement of several universities that support the entire event will undoubtedly guarantee the interest of these conferences for academics and professionals from different countries in Latin America and Europe
