Thinking is a versatile and complex process. It begins with the birth of man and continues until his death. The important thing is how and in what ways this time is spent. The more accurate the thinking process is, the more accurate and smooth the way of communication and life will be. It is through reason and logic that the proces progresses in this way. Especially when logic is considered as a form of thinking, a kind of thinking called logical thinking emerges.It is a thought that forms the basis of correct thinking by making use of reasoning forms, making comparisons and making conclusions by making proposals with concepts. However, when the literature is reviewed, it seems that the information about this thinking is insufficient and incomplete. With the aim of uncovering these insufficiencies and compensating for them, collecting data about logical thinking with the use of interviews is the main purpose of this study. For this reason, 22 academicians having different titles and working at different departments in Atatürk University Kazim Karabekir Education Faculty during the fall semester of 2016 - 2017 academic year were interviewed. The data were collected through a questionnaire consisting of 4 open ended questions. Content analysis was used for the analysis of the data. The findings showed that academicians held different opinions about logical thinking. It was revealed that logical thinking is a process of reasoning, helps to make inferences and to establish a cause-effect relationship. It also prevents mental disorders and emotions, and it is effective in decision-making processes and in improving the quality of life at the same time.
