This is a clear, stimulating and practical exploration of thinking. It is the kind of book that Plato or Aristotle might have liked. It deals with fundamentals and it actively engages with the reader to own and be transformed by the material. Bunzl is exploring the nature of thinking; it is a quest that as a reader you can join in on. The book is philosophical, but in a way that practically illumines the nature of thinking.
Thinking is that most practical of activities by which human beings made the journey from animal nature to the heights of civilisation. It is also our best chance to lay claim to be able to grasp the spiritual in the cosmos. It is the arch that joins earthbound tools and knowledge of the material world with the essences of existence.
Bunzl begins by pointing out that if we can think about and observe thinking (which is very different from thinking thoughts) we can achieve a dramatic and unique transformation of understanding. Through series of clear, simple and practical steps the reader follows and can practically engage in a journey that has been central to many of the great philosophers and thinkers through the ages and in the process come to a new discovery about himself or herself in the world.
A life changing read
