👀 [Replay] July 5th virtual chalet & curious exploration
We discussed philosophy and how the process of exploring certain topics affects your understanding of them, which lead us to talk about the nature of rabbit holes, and that behind an apparent endless network of things there is a tacit structure that acts as an attractor.
We discuss the relationship between our identity and our social tissue and the social dissonance that creates social media. Then we move on to the subject of how many discussions (in design) remain on surface-level things (tools, methods, etc.), and why we need to dive into the underlying concepts & models. We make some comparisons between the fact that you can't understand what causes a trend to happen by studying the trend itself (you need to side-step), like copying a certain style does not provide you with knowledge of the contextual reason for this style to exist.
And many more things about decision-making, handling difficult discussions, knowing how and when to debate, and “steel manning” an opposite position.
📆 [Event] The marriage between design and philosophy
Hey, we need to discuss. No seriously. Design and philosophy seem to be two different things, right? One is about thinking, and the other about doing... or are they?
How can we link back design practice and philosophy? What are the possible pain points of doing so? And what are the benefits of such a marriage?
Join us and participate in an informal discussion on Tuesday July 12th, at 6 PM CET 👇
