Thinking with concepts by John Wilson( Book )

71 editions published between 1963 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 1,703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his preface Mr Wilson writes 'I feel that a great many adults ... would do better to spend less time in simply accepting the concepts of others uncritically, and more time in learning how to analyse concepts in general'. Mr Wilson starts by describing the techniques of conceptual analysis. He then gives examples of them in action by composing answers to specific questions and by criticism of quoted passages of argument. Chapter 3 sums up the importance of this kind of mental activity. Chapter 4 presents selections for the reader to analyse, followed by questions of university entrance/scholarship type. This is a book to be worked through, in a sense a text-book

Education and the concept of mental health by John Wilson( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 2019 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept of 'normality' or mental health is a difficult one to define, but educators and social psychologists must have a clear definition of it in order to proceed with practical work. In this stimulating and informative book, originally published in 1968, Mr Wilson discusses the idea of mental health, both as a general concept and specifically as it affects the teacher as educator. He deals with the problems of learning and the 'difficult' child, not confining his suggestions within the boundaries of curricular teaching but exploring the wider aspect of moral education."--Provided by publisher
