These are the books I have bought or borrowed from libraries in the Washington Research Library Consortium for my main retirement project, How Others Think. My chief idea is that someone with an intuitive understanding of how those in many occupations other than his own think will be in an excellent position to image other solutions to a problem he is involved with and combine them into something new and creative. It is said that medical education begins during internship, after one has taken all the courses in medical school. What the internship does is help him rummage through myriad facts that he has learned in class to come up with a diagnosis. The practice of medicine is an art as much as a science.
My claim is that a physician can use this intuitive understanding in areas far removed from medicine. I say much the same for other professions. An economist will focus on the exact cost and choice situation and will also ask if a supposed problem is a non-problem or rather one that will take care of itself by the normal workings of market forces. A C.E.O. has mastered skills such as knowing where to concentrate his efforts. A lawyer develops a sense of how to chop up problems and to antiicpate the very best arguments of opposing council and not, like most of us, hunt for only the weakest points. A statistician is always alert to variation and is aware that his own opinions can be placed on a spectrum. A historian realizes that his own opinions are conditioned by the time and circumstances in which he lives. A mathematician typically solves a problem by generalizing it, solving the more general problem, and applying the solution to the original problem.
And on and on. Most of us do not focus on the exact cost and choice situation. Most of us do not properly concentrate our efforts. Few of us seek the best arguments against us. Most of us think we represent the one true way and arrive at this way outside of society. And few of us habitually look for a larger picture.
And on and on. The difficulty is that few of us will go to medical school and then internship AND get an advanced degree in economics AND pass the bar in law AND pick up advanced degrees in all these other fields.
What I am to do is to think how to shorten the time required to develop intuitive understandings. I am not after content. I am after method. And I am not aiming to be abstractly desciptive about how others think. Though this is fascinating in its own right, I want in the first instance to find some fairly thick books, which, if you sweat through them, you will have developed at least some intuitive understanding of how others think.
Books can go only so far. They do not offer the sort of feedback an apprenticeship or intern program does. And books largely drill in content anyhow. My hope is not just to get you to read, "sitting bolt upright in a hard chair," but to inspire the creation of one-semester courses that will focus on method. Forget content. (Quick: what is the quadratic formula? What is a volt times an amp? Why did you bother with the ninth grade?) Compress all of high school math to a single semester, to get you familiar with generalize-solve-apply and in areas far outside of mathematics.
Here are the books. I am not ready to make recommendations. Help me find more and in other areas.
