In “Metathinking” the authors explore dialectical thinking – in contrast to logical thinking – and introduce the readers to a mind-opening thinking process they call “Metathinking”. In three parts they introduce the reader to the why, the what and the how of dialectical thinking. They include several case studies of Metathinking in action and a series of exercises to enable readers to learn to how to become Metathinkers.
“Shannon and Frischherz have made a great leap forward in the integration of the theory and practice of dialectical thinking in a world that, as they make clear in their introduction, desperately needs it” - Professor Michael Basseches
