Here I associate the mind with the Masculine Principle and thinking which with learning, develops into intellect. This is contrasted with intuition which I associate with the Female Principle and the deeper heart-mind. They are different epistemological ways of knowing which reflect different levels of consciousness of the Self where each way of knowing has a different origin, the surface mind and the deeper heart-mind.

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. Adults.

It is an important concept which I don't believe was fully realized in the book. I feel the real significance of the Metaphoric mind is in what it is
connected too.

Wondering what is happening to your life, your world, your culture? The answer is here in this little known book. We all walk in the realm of metaphors, Samples gives us a walking stick to steady us.

I read this book in college when it first came out. This and the book, Drawing on the Left Side of the Brain, influenced my thinking on consciousness, on the logical vs. the holistic in our thinking. It is a thought provoking book, non-religious, which leans towards the nature, Zen, in finding innner peace, in finding the whole from the fragments. It is a good commentary on the way our society has come to focus on the logical, measurable, rather than the higher pursuits of thinking and the peaceful/free things of life, such as the cover illustrates.

I enjoyed the book, it helped me think more deeply about our present society and it inadequacies, and at the same time to place higher value on develpoing the mind in the intuitive and holistic. I would recommend it as a research book for college students, or for anyone trying to break free from OCD type of thinking.

I read this book years ago when it first came out. My training is in art and psychology, and I was developing a speciality in sand tray therapy with children. In contradistinction to the last review I found this text to be a wonderful study demonstrating the importance of play in the process of learning. I still use several slides photographed from the book when I teach about the process of play therapy and sandplay therapy. Most children intuitively learn about the world in a series of excursions from right brain knowing in the process of play to left brain comprehension and verbalization. I thought it was brilliant.

The author introduces and explores the concept of "the Metaphoric Mind." He admittedly does not originate much of the thought in this book, but rather collects it from a variety of sources and then adds his own opinion to it. Still, it is clear that the author is making an additional contribution of his own. In a nutshell, the metaphoric mind is the sort of intuitive, preconscious, "right brained" counterpart to our rationale, logical, "left brain." Some of the material is dated (see Robert Ornstein's _The_Right_Mind_) in terms of the physiological basis for the metaphoric mind. Nevertheless, the concept holds today and the most valuable part of the book, the case for recognition of the metaphoric mind as the necessary and appropriate counterpart to the rationale mind, is intact. All-in-all a thought provoking book which should be of special interest to anyone pursing the topics of Zen, Right/Left Mindedness and Creativity.

and I did not find one sentence that made much sense at all!

Not one.

It's a Miss Macintosh, My Darling for the psychology set.
