From the Publisher"...an important contribution indicative of the need for corrective education in matters pertaining to complex thinking about serious social issues."
—Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies
This book is about Relational and Contextual Reasoning (RCR), a new theory of the human mind that addresses key areas of human conflict, such as the ideological conflict between nations, in close relationships and between science and religion. K. Helmut Reich provides a clear and accessible introduction to the RCR way of thinking that encourages an inclusive rather than oppositional approach to conflict and problem-solving.
