Edward de Bono's Message for Today - 21st December 2005


An insight switch-over involves discontinuity. It involves breaking loose from an established way of looking at things in order to find a new one. For this reason insight cannot be achieved by the sequential process of logical thinking which insists that you must be right at each stage.

So logical thinking will only preserve the established way of looking at things - not change it. To do this one needs lateral thinking.


Edward de Bono, 1971. "Practical Thinking"

Thanks I decided to do a web search at Amazon and it came up with a list of books he has had published. "Six Thinking Hats " seemed really interesting. I
appreciate being turned on to new ways of thinking. You never know where ideas may go that way.

Dr. de Bono has written over 60 books... it's hard to keep up!

I usually find copies in used book stores.

Also on www.bookfinder.com

His book, de Bono's Thinking Course is a must read!!

An 'insight switchover' or paradigm shift can be arrived at logically,IMO.
What is required is new information to arrive at the new paradigm.
When the new information is logically integrated into the old system it changes your insight into the nature of the object of your attention.

interesting discussion, I hold on to the result of a new Theory just like Karl Popper... http://www.eeng.dcu.ie/~tkpw/.
If the idea is better then the old one (better application, higher utility) then I do not care which way you took in order to find it...
