(Jean-Francois Lyotard, 1992, Philosopher.)

Write to LearnWe know, understand, intuit, remember, feel, think more than we realise. Writing can enable expressive exploration of areas to which logical or analytic thinking has limited access. For a grasp across the spectrum of experience we need to use ‘the full tetrad of fact, logic, metaphor and story’ (McCloskey, 1992, Economist.)www.gilliebolton.com

Observation – perceptive, empathetic – the heart of professional practice: psychology, law, police, medicine, health, social work, education.

Acute, accurate observation – cornerstone of research into science, literature, social science, history, natural sciences.

Reflective writing’s observation of any aspect of events, people and surroundings borrows techniques and strategies from all these.
