The Stigma of Genius: Einstein, Consciousness, and Education (Counterpoints #111) (Paperback)

Introducing post-formal thinking for educators and students, the authors of this book use Albert Einstein as a metaphor for student's failure in today's schools. Blending biography and scholarship, they re-introduce cognition in an accessible way that makes ways of knowing make sense.
