Why crucial decisions can’t be made in the blink of an eye
by Michael R. LeGault
2006, THRESHOLD EDITIONS, 336 pages
On the heels of the popular 2005 book Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell—which argues that we know things a lot more subconsciously and immediately than we often realize—Michael LeGault says, “We make knowledge the old-fashioned way, we noodle it out.”
LeGault holds that to arrive at knowledge requires a good deal of work in the pedestrian fields of logic. And the book, mainly by reference to modern-day omissions of that logic, shows us the importance of the fading art of thinking.
