In this book, Janet McIntyre addresses the need for transcultural thinking tools, to not only mend problems in the global environment but also to understand the essential nature of the problems. Thinking tools comprise the analytical concepts which organise, disorganise, pattern and question thoughts about the social and natural world. Specifically, the concepts introduced in this book are 'global citizenship', 'human rights', 'responsibility', 'social movements' and 'transcultural webs of meaning'.
'The book is a powerful synthesis, pointing out the availability of knowledge which can be effectively used to solve the problems of society and improve the quality of life.' - Adam Jamrozik, University of South Australia
'Dr. McIntyre's approach of the need for an educational system which teaches across the full spectrum of cultural characteristics, values, and conditions is paramount to a truly sustainable future, not only domestically, but internationally.' - Kelly D. Cain, University of Wisconsin
