The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think in Action

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A leading M.I.T. social scientist and consultant examines five professions—engineering, architecture, management, psychotherapy, and town planning—to show how professionals really go about solving problems.The best professionals, Donald Schön maintains, know more than they can put into words.
