Former defense secretary, Robert McNamara says war is flawed by mere rationalism while the brain’s reflective powers, enable us to avoid errors of judgments.
Former Federal Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan, says that mere rational decision-making cannot mend our economic crisis – out of control from mechanistic reasoning.
Since brains integrate knowledge naturally, while humans tend to separate facts artificially, I say we reconfigure learning with integration as core. What do you say?
- Change hard and soft skills into smart skills.
- Balance decisions between reason and emotion.
- Toss multiple intelligences into the mental mix.
- Value diversity as far more than deficit model.
When integration finds its place within learning, then diversity will describe more leading circles and we’ll finally see no brain left behind. Who knows, perhaps different cultures, genders, beliefs and values would come together in beneficial peace plans as a result. Or maybe racial differences would fuse into smarter lifestyles for all. What do you think?
