about

Alcorn examines qualities of student resistance to new and uncomfortable information and proposes methods for teachers to work productively with such resistance. Drawing on research from numerous disciplines showing how emotion grounds human reason, he outlines an agenda that makes emotional experience central to educational practice.

Editorial Reviews

"Providing an understanding of how human communication, interaction, and reason are grounded in emotion, Alcorn has produced a work useful to teachers at every level, especially those at the university level. Rich with examples and cases that exemplify the points raised, the work provides fertile grounds for discussion and analysis of a topical, important subject." CHOICE
