‘Intellectual Styles’ is an umbrella term for all types of styles. It takes into consideration, the concepts and constructs of ‘cognitive styles’, ‘learning styles’, teaching styles’ and ‘thinking styles’. This is done in an attempt to give a less complicated and single reference point for ‘styles’ research in general, and is itself the product of recent research aimed at a unification of the plethora of styles. Handbook of Intellectual Styles is a collection of carefully selected articles that give a holistic account of various intellectual styles. The book begins with a preface, in which the editors define intellectual styles as “a generic term for all style constructs, with or without the root word ‘style’, and refers to people’s preferred ways of processing information and dealing with tasks”. The editors identify the goal of the book as: “to provide a complete, definitive, and authoritative single volume on intellectual styles”.
