Product Description

Product Description

In Intelligence, Osho challenges the common conception that the best way to promote intelligence is to train the intellect. Intellect is logical, he says; intelligence is paradoxical. Intellect takes things apart to see how they work; intelligence puts things together to see the functioning of the whole. Osho posits that when our education systems put too much emphasis on developing intellect, an imbalance is created and both the individual and the society suffer. It is only through intelligence that we can respond creatively to the challenges of a changing world.

The Insights for a New Way of Living series aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves. The text is an artful mix of compassion and humor, and readers are encouraged to confront what they would most like to avoid, which in turn provides the key to true insight and power.

By exploring the distinction between intellect and intelligence, Intelligence encourages readers to be more aware of how they approach problems---logical, emotional, and practical---and how they solve them.

About the Author

HASH(0x99993aec) out of 5 stars Intelligence by Osho 19 June 2004
By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author deals with a complicated subject very simply. He gives
great credit to animals for the intuitive reasoning that they
possess in the conduct of daily life. According to Osho, intelligence is not per se subject to precise measurement.
In addition, there are conditions which impede intellectual
rationalizations and applications. For instance, great stress
can inhibit our ability to function meaningfully on the creative or intuitive level. The author gives credence to the notion that relaxation methodologies; such as, formal meditation
provide the requisite environment for the creative side of our
intelligence to flourish and grow. The book provides a fresh
perspective on what constitutes intelligence and creativity.
It would be appealing to a wide constituency of readers in
business, academe and the general readership.
It is a good value for the price charged.

HASH(0x99a5bcfc) out of 5 stars Quite amazing ... 8 April 2008
By Sharad Yadav - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is very difficult to see good books on topics such as "Intelligence" and "Intuition". I have read many (well written & researched) books that talk about workbook techniques to increase one's intelligence. But, their syllabus like content makes them rather uninteresting to read and I have never been able to sustain my interest in them beyond a couple of days.

This book will not tell you about techniques to build intelligence because intelligence is innate. It'll help you rediscover it, understand it and ultimately use it. Intelligence is very liberating, it helps removes all dependencies and quell agonies from the past and worries of the future. The book will also define and describe the real meaning (and manifestation) of ubiquitous terms like simple, simplicity and personality. The book is like a narration and there is some repetition, but even the repetition makes compulsive reading.

I won't say that this is the best book that I've ever read, but it is certainly the most enlightening and eye-opening.

HASH(0x999995b8) out of 5 stars Intelligence 2 April 2008
By Ron Rasmussen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Difficult at best to put down once you begin - the words maybe from Osho but the meaning comes from beyond them - each page spoke to my soul - his humor mixed with his message is so easy to grasp.
