9781573921558: In the Mind's Eye: Visual Thinkers, Gifted People With Dyslexia and Other Learning Difficulties, Computer Images and the Ironies of Creativity

This inspiring book profiles gifted individuals who used nontraditional methods in their work as it explodes many myths about conventional intelligence and charts new vistas for today's computer visualization technologies. Some of our most original intellects--Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Lewis Carroll, and Winston Churchill--relied heavily on visual modes of thought, processing information in terms of images instead of words or numbers. Thomas G. West examines the learning difficulties experienced by both famous and everyday people, and he explores how recent neurological research shows an association between visual talents and verbal difficulties. In the Mind's Eye probes new data on dyslexics to see how computers enhance the creative potential of visual thinkers, as well as interactive computer applications at all levels of education and work.

Updated with a new preface, epilogue, and expanded notes, this volume could be the clarion call for educators and corporations to mine this untapped resource of highly creative talent in our midst.

Review:

“In the Mind's Eye brings out the special problems of people with dyslexia, but also their strengths, which are so often overlooked . . . . It stands alongside Howard Gardner's Frames of Mind as a testament to the range of human talent and possibility.” --Oliver Sacks, M.D.


"Thomas West brings to life the fascinating capacities and syndromes that arise from our visual-spatial imagination. His book proves beyond doubt that we are not all points on a single bell curve of intelligence." -- Howard Gardner
"Unfortunately, I did not discover this wonderful book beforre I wrote Thinking in Pictures....I recommend it to teachers, parents, and education policy-makers. West profiles people with dyslexia who are visual thinkers, and his conclusions on the link between visual thinking and creativity are similar to mine."

-- Temple Grandin 
"Every once in a while a book comes along that turns one's thinking upside down. In the Mind's Eye is just such a book." --Roeper Review

Descripción Prometheus Books, United States, 1997. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this updated edition to his fascinating exploration of the ironies of creativity, Thomas West furthers his ground-breaking research on how some innovations in computer visualization are making work and education more favorable to visual thinkers. In the Mind s Eye exposes many popular myths about conventional intelligence by examining the role of visual-spatial strengths and verbal weaknesses in the lives of eleven gifted individuals, including Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison, and others. West cites research in neuroscience that shows a link between visual talents and verbal difficulties, and he believes that new developments in computer technology herald a significant shift toward the increased use of visual approaches throughout the economy. These changes may be as revolutionary as the technology of the book, which translated ideas into written words. The use of visualization and virtual reality computer displays has already begun to move out of the world of science into that business, representing marketing trends through moving pictures rather than tiresome charts and tables of numbers. According to West, creative visual thinkers (many of whom have had difficulty with verbal skills), aided by computers, will be at the forefront of innovation in a dramatically changing society.
