Thinking and intelligence

  • Philip Banyard

This chapter is about how we make sense of the world. Making sense of things, interpreting situations and scenes, and planning activities are such basic human qualities that we take them for granted. We do not need to understand how we think, or how we plan, in order to do it — we just go ahead. It is interesting, though, to consider some of the characteristics of intelligent activity and what we might be able to do to enhance it.
