Local notes

This landmark book inspires us with new ways to think about and develop our capacity as learners and educators. The rational/technological/scientific way of doing things has scored one success after another, but often ignoring those other aspects of life and mind that make us truly human. The Metaphoric Mind presents a process for a balanced way of thinking and being in a culture that stands on the knife-edge between catastrophe and transformation. The author draws examples and evidence from anthropology, biology, brain physiology, psychology and from his own pioneering work in teaching creativity to write passionately about the rollicking, intuitive, creative part of ourselves that we have lost and, most importantly, how to regain it. Ultimately a positive vision of the future and how you can fit into it.
