Information and feeling underlie all thinking.

Thinking depends on information and is strongly influenced by feeling.

CoRT 5 deals with information processes, such as questions, clues, guessing, belief, ready-made opinions and the misuses of information.

We also deal with emotions and values and the part these play when dealing with information..

The aim of CoRT 5 is to encourage a definite awareness of these influences - not to change them.

The students are also trained to recognise what information they have, what they still require and how to use information.

The techniques used in each lesson are designed to develop detachment and observation.
