|Synopsis: Paradigms that are innate
to all human beings, and those formed from models in the natural and
social sciences, guide our conscious thoughts, beliefs and actions.
The thesis of the author is that ‘asymmetrical paradigms,’ which he
defines, are projected by the media, interest groups and political
stakeholders for their own ends using partial evidence.
As such they hinder progress, effective solutions and human
development. A paradigm formation model, based on the works of
Thomas S. Kuhn and Carl J. Jung, among other eminent scientists, is
developed and then applied to two examples: the gender pay gap and
Brexit. The aim of this
book is to increase people’s awareness of their own paradigms, and
how to recognise and understand the paradigms of others.
