Summary:
"This book offers a counterpoint to the critical thinking that characterizes much of the discourse in the humanities. The author asks readers to rethink how we teach the humanities, addresses why we should, and argues strongly that we have lost touch with "generous thinking," the author's term for the ability to create, empathize, and build rather than simply tear apart. Thinking creatively and cooperatively is a hallmark of humanistic thinking that can help to solve social problems and ease strife"-- Provided by publisher.
