Edgar Morin : “Il faut enseigner ce qu’est être humain”

Le sociologue et philosophe, qui plaide pour une prise en compte de la complexité dans l’enseignement, intervient au WISE, sommet mondial pour l’innovation dans l’éducation, qui se tient du 29 au 31 octobre à Doha, au Qatar.

This interview contains a "passage" that for me is fundamental:

It reads as follows:

"Il faut sans cesse s’appuyer sur une avant-garde agissante. Il n’existe jamais de consensus préalable à l’innovation. On n’avance pas à partir d’une opinion moyenne qui n’est pas démocratique mais médiocratique. On avance à partir d’une passion créatrice. Toute innovation transformatrice est d’abord une déviance. Elle se diffuse en devenant une tendance puis une force historique"


It happens as I’m still impregnated of Francesco Varela’s ideas  after my 3rd read of his booklet  "Ethical Know-How – Action, Wisdom and Cognition" – the transcript and translation  of three lectures he gave in 1992 in Bologna published by Stanford University Press

The conclusion of the book reads as follows:

"My presentation is, more than anything, a plea for a re-enchantement of wisdom, understood as non-intentional action. This skillful approach to living is based on a pragmatics of transformation that demands nothing less than a moment-to-moment awareness of the virtual nature of our selves. In its full unfolding it opens up openness as authentic caring. These are radical ideas and strong measures for the troubled times we have at hand, and the even more troubled ones we are likely to have.."

About charlesvanderhaegen

I am a grandfather of an immensely inspiring family, thanks to the most incredible wife. To satisfy my family's needs, I was for 30 years business entrepreneur, roller coasting between success and failure. 17 years ago I was forced to stop and reflect. I dug into theory and discovered the World out there, that my involvement in Business had kept hidden to me. I feared that I will not escape remaining amidst my trans-disciplinary quest forever, bouncing back and forth from action to theory, always puzzled by Europe's apparent incapacity to free itself from its Institutional/Technological Lock-ins. My horizon opened up when Gunter Pauly, my intimate friend of 35 years, asked me to join him and take charge ZERI's development in Europe. I am now fully engaged alongside Gunter Pauli in the http://www.zeri.org and the @myblueeconomy Networks as CEO of ZERI.EU vzw (Non for Profit association)
