Egan’s THE EDUCATED MIND: HOW COGNITIVE TOOLS SHAPE OUR UNDERSTANDING
Popular Features. New Releases. Description The ills of education are caused, this text argues, by the fact that we have inherited three major educational ideas, each of which is incompatible with the other two. These mutual incompatibilities, it continues, bring about clashes at every level of the educational process, from curriculum decisions to teaching methods.
The text presents an alternative. It concludes with practical proposals for how teaching and curriculum should be changed to reflect this new conception and fit in with how we actually learn.

The Educated Mind How Cognitive Tools Shape Our Understanding

Lenore Tawney Karen Patterson. Slices and Lumps Lee Anne Fennell. Read the introduction.
These mediating tools generate successive kinds of understanding: somatic, mythic, romantic, philosophical, and ironic. Very provocative is Egan's argument that our individual development recapitulates our larger cultural history: from the somatic understanding of our prehistoric ancestors, to the romantic mode of early literate societies, through to the ironic mode of the modern era. As practical as it is theoretically innovative, the book concludes with practical proposals for how teaching and curriculum should be changed to reflect this new conception and fits in with how we actually learn.
The writing is elegant, witty, and rich with insights. The narrative moves from profound theoretical issues, discussed with great clarity and telling examples, to details of practical implementation. Innovative, provocative, and compelling, Egan's " The Educated Mind" offers a bold and revitalizing new vision for today's uncertain educational system.
