As attitudes shift to a more human and humane view of what education should be about, Professor Guy Claxton provides a timely and thought-provoking critique of 'emotional intelligence' and 'emotional literacy', issues which are gaining increasing currency and popularity. This publication sheds light on a complex but 'fuzzy' concept. It provides teachers, lecturers and education professionals with a clear insight into how emotions in everyday learning are vital to the well-being of individuals and communities.
An intelligent look at emotional intelligence is a challenging document. It cuts through the rhetoric and serves as a valuable, academic assessment of how emotions are increasingly being displayed in the classroom and the playground. Professor Claxton, as a psychologist, shares his wide knowledge on this cutting-edge subject and, as an academic, reminds us that we must continually apply a rigorous, critical faculty in approaching emotional intelligence.
