This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Stephen Kosslyn, a renowned psychologist and Founder, President and Chief Academic Officer of Foundry College.This wide-ranging conversation explores Kosslyn and his colleagues’ extensive analysis of research results on the differences between what the top parts of the brain and the bottom parts of the brain do and what the implications of those results are for everyday life which led to a new theory of personality to better understand the way we think and behave, the so-called Theory of Cognitive Modes. In addition the discussion covers how pedagogical principles were applied in the real world of learning and teaching by establishing Minerva Schools at KGI.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Synoptic Progress, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Only Communicate - The PowerPointing Professor

II. Top Brain, Bottom Brain - A new theory of personality

III. Beyond Theory - Testing the hypotheses

IV. Transforming Education - The Minerva Project

V. Making A Difference - Jumping to the front lines

VI. Surveying the Landscape - The evolution of cognitive science
