Summary

The major concerns of this paper are the varying ways of approaching, diagnosing and solving the problems besetting education as a result of the rapid technological and social changes which uniquely characterize our own day. Three chapters address various aspects of thinking and of education. The first proposes a definition of the educational process, and formulates the rationale, objectives, theoretical assumptions, and educational implications of the paper's major concept, "self-correcting thinking", defined as thinking which inherently tends toward progressively increasing accuracy, ever increasing reality-orientation, and ever wider and deeper comprehension. Chapter Two focuses on: (1) the characteristics of "self-correcting thinking"; (2) perspectives critically influencing thinking; and (3) the relationship of these to possibilities for learning. The final chapter discusses some seminal books and papers (e.g., of Arieti and Bettelheim) which are related to the paper's premises. (TL)
