Where Thinking is a Proper Job
Published by UQP in 2009, Transaction (USA) in 2010
"The main question of our age is how we live our lives. As we struggle with this, we face other questions. How do we handle ideas and knowledge, both our own and other people's? What relationship to ideas do we want? Where do we want to think? - the opening words of 'Creative Ecologies: Where Thinking is a Proper Job' published by UQP in 2009, in the UK and USA in 2010 and in China in 2011.
This new book identifies a new ecology of learning and thinking. It is holistic and radical and provocative, ranging over systems theory, emergent thinking in the arts and sciencies, and new ideas about dialogue and collaboration. Throughout, the focus is how people have ideas and how they can use ideas to develop, collaborate and adapt.
