In a world on fire with unprecedented possibility as well as peril, what kind of mind is needed in order to thrive and survive? How can education help develop human potential to be a match for this reality? The Integrative Mind radically updates the vision that we hold for education, the pedagogy that can help us achieve it, and the human consciousness that underlies it all. Consciousness and culture has been thrown out of balance by the neglect of key ways of meeting the world. The solution at the edge of this new episteme is not so much about what we know but instead about how we know. With practical applications and contemporary research, Tobin Hart shows that the way into the future requires a recalibration of mind. Hart explores five ┐?┐missing minds┐?┐: contemplative, empathic, beautiful, embodied, and imaginative. These help open the aperture of consciousness enabling us to move, as Thomas Berry said, from seeing the world as a collection of objects to experiencing it as a communion of subjects. The result is an essential deepening of understanding and our humanity.
