About the A Practice that Sustains course:
This short course will provide you with an opportunity to not only reflect upon your present way of life, but also to envisage a future that is both feasible and desirable, and to plan for it to come into being. In creating your own future you cannot be told “who or “how to be”; you must “extract” this vision from your values, circumstances and personal knowledge.
Since “no learner is an island”, who and how you wish to be is best connected with a vision of a society worth living in. You will thus combine your own creative thought, investigation and work, with the collaborative “extraction” from shared situations, aspirations, visions of desirable and feasible futures of others and work to begin to realize these.
Practices explored are Emery’s Open Systems Thinking, Latour’s Philosophy of Science = “science in action” rather than “science as fact” and Actor-Network Theory (Latour, Law et al) for example. As we will be working on “things in process” Action Research applies. You will be encouraged to work with these practices in your life, in order to become proficient.
