Drawing on the theory-of-mind in B. Lonergan's Insight: A Study of Human Understanding (2000), King forges the much-needed critical-experimental link between the reader's own written or spoken expressions and the dynamic structure of the human mind. A philosophy of education emerges that the reader-experimenter can not only understand and critically verify but also identify with personally as their own. King distinguishes knowledge-gathering from undergoing internal change, or the shorter from the longer philosophical journey. Finding the Mind offers the critical clarity of objective-experimentation as the shorter journey, while fostering the reader's potential internal development in the longer. Written for teacher education, Finding the Mind also has broad import for the social sciences as well as other areas where field-foundational meaning is of interest. Undergoing the experiment, anyone can find the mind while also personally experience internal change. The work is appropriate for a three-credit undergraduate course.
