How can we create better connections amongst ourselves, and with our environment? Would we become better at connecting with each other if we were good at connecting with our environment? And vice versa?
This is my first ‘pocket research design‘, (read about my pocket method here), sketching the following ‘pocket research program’:
- First, I read Australian professor of environmental philosophy Freya Mathews’ article Towards a Deeper Philosophy of Biomimicry. See my summary here.
- Next, I discuss the question of a possible relationship between hierarchical societies and the way they treat their surroundings. Read my essay here.
- Finally, I discuss what role communication and cognition play in living systems and their interactions. (Coming up)
My third bullet is a really important project, however, I have understood the necessity of digging more into some aspects of human-environment interaction, which is why I by May 3rd 2018 launched my ‘Pocket research design 2’: Pre-modern forager societies vs Spinoza’s polis. A model for a more sustainable way of life in our time?
