In Educating Intuition, Robin M. Hogarth offers the first comprehensive overview of what the science of psychology can tell us about intuitionwhere it comes from, how it works, whether we can trust it. He finds that intuition is a normal and important component of thought that has its roots in processes of tacit learning. Environment, attention, experience, expertise, and the success of the scientific method all form part of Hogarths perspective on intuition, leading him to the surprisingbut naturalconclusion that we can educate our sixth sense. To this end he offers concrete suggestions and exercises to help readers develop their intuitive skills and habits for learning the right lessons from experience.
Artfully and accessibly combining cognitive science, the latest research in psychology, and Hogarths own observations,Educating Intuition eschews the vague approach to the topic that has become commonplace and provides instead a wholly engaging and practical guide to enhancing our intuitive skills.
"Hogarth tackles a fascinating topic that has until now garnered little scientific attention. This ambitious book aims not only to define and explore the strengths and limitations of humans' 'sixth sense' but also to discover how it can be improved." - American Scientist"商品の説明をすべて表示する
My job is to develop curriculum at the National Outdooor Leadership School (NOLS) and I find this book very helpful in looking at how people can learn to make better decisions in real field situations.
