Summary: . . . a successful combination of different starting points in using writing as a mode of learning ''beyond the cognitive.'' - Rhetoric Review Presence of Mind explores the mind at work, calling attention to the vast area of learning beyond the cognitive domain. The book invites teachers to become alert to the areas of the mind beyond the cognitive domain; become more familiar and comfortable with those areas; appreciate them as vital forces in writing; and help students use them to
