An exploration of the slower ways of knowing that we have unlearned or ignored, but that are crucial to our complete mental development. Claxton argues that the human brain-mind is capable of degrees of subtlety and wisdom for solving complicated personal emotional predicaments, which defy everyday rationality and cleverness.

Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind Summary

Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind: Why Intelligence Increases When You Think Less by Guy Claxton

The human brain will do a number of unusual and interesting things if given time. It will learn patterns of a degree of subtlety which normal, busy consciousness cannot even see, let alone master, and make sense out of ill-defined situations which leave everyday rationality flummoxed. It will get to the bottom of personal, emotional issues more successfully than the questioning intellect. It will detect and respond to meaning, in poetry for example, that cannot be articulated. This is Guy Claxton's viewpoint, and in this work he explores the slower ways of knowing and explains how they could be used more effectively.
