Hare brain, tortoise mind : why intelligence increases when you think less by Guy Claxton( Book )
24 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 1,085 libraries worldwide
"In Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind, psychologist Guy Claxton makes an appeal to be less analytical and let our creativity have free rein. He argues compellingly that the mind works best when we trust our unconscious, or "undermind"--A cool, intelligent resource that needs only time and receptivity to function. Claxton also pushes for a reevaluation of society's obsession with results-oriented thinking and problem-solving under pressure." "Packed with interesting anecdotes, a dozen puzzles to test your reasoning, and the latest related research, Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind is an uplifting, stimulating read that focuses on a new kind of well-being, cognition, and problem-solving."--Jacket

Intelligence in the flesh : why your mind needs your body much more than it thinks by Guy Claxton( Book )
6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 526 libraries worldwide
"If you think that intelligence emanates from the mind and that reasoning necessitates the suppression of emotion, you'd better think again--or rather not "think" at all. In his provocative new book, Guy Claxton draws on the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology to reveal how our bodies--long dismissed as mere conveyances--actually constitute the core of our intelligent life. From the endocrinal means by which our organs communicate to the instantaneous decision-making prompted by external phenomena, our bodies are able to perform intelligent computations that we either overlook or wrongly attribute to our brains. Embodied intelligence is one of the most exciting areas in contemporary philosophy and neuropsychology, and Claxton shows how the privilege given to cerebral thinking has taken a toll on modern society, resulting in too much screen time, the diminishment of skilled craftsmanship, and an overvaluing of white-collar over blue-collar labor. Discussing techniques that will help us reconnect with our bodies, Claxton shows how an appreciation of the body's intelligence will enrich all our lives."--Provided from

The intuitive practitioner : on the value of not always knowing what one is doing ( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 342 libraries worldwide
"Much of the time, experienced professionals in both education and other fields cannot explain what they are doing, or tell you what they know; and students cannot articulate their learning. Yet professional development and practice are often discussed as if conscious understanding and deliberation are of the essence. The Intuitive Practitioner tackles this apparent paradox head on, and explores the dynamic relationship between reason and intuition in the context of professional practice. Focusing mainly on the professional world of the teacher, but with illustrative discussions of medical and business practice, the contributors delicately unpick the vexed and neglected nature of intuition, and demonstrate the vital role it plays in the development of professional judgement and expertise."--Jacket

Liberating the learner : lessons for professional development in education ( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 209 libraries worldwide
The quality of children's learning in school is dependent on the style of a teacher's approach and the learning environment he or she creates. This, in turn, is a reflection of teachers' own beliefs, anxieties and enthusiasms about learning, often gained through their own educational experiences. This edited volume provides a new framework for exploring teachers' views on a whole range of professional issues, such as the nature of teaching and learning, the needs of students, and their own abilities as learners. Within this is presented a variety of case studies which illustrate how teachers' views impact upon students' learning. The conclusions drawn from this study can be used in a practical way to assist teachers' professional development throughout their career. All teacher trainers and mentors who take seriously their role of helping children to be resourceful, resilient and reflective learners will find this book of valuable assistance
