Our series of discussions on the theme of marrying design and philosophy comes to an end with a third and final round on Tuesday 23 August at 6 PM CET.
This time, we want to explore two aspects:
- First, is the importance of coming to a form of pragmatism, which one might call “pragmatic design philosophy”. That is, design relates to the ability to act in the “now and here” with realism toward the capabilities we have at our disposal in context – not only ours but others too.
- Second, is the (equal) importance of connecting to a form of abstractive and poetic conceptualisation, which one might call creativity. This is best expressed by the idea of "connecting the dots", here not in a purely logical sense but in a potentially odd and unexpected way. This is the place of metaphors and nonlinear-yet-serendipitous thinking.
The goal of this session is to explore this tension that underly many aspects of the design practice. Join us here 👇
