Abstract

Cultural and epistemic backgrounds, subject-object relationships, assumptions and conflicts, are examined by heuristic-hermeneutic processes in the sociocultural learning niches. Diagnosis and prognosis of current problems take into account the connections (assets) and ruptures (deficits) between the different dimensions of the world, as donors and recipients: intimate; interactive; social and biophysical. The proposal presents not only a descriptive position, but also a normative position, critically inquiring into prevailing assumptions in view of design/debate, meaning-making, connections-mapping, democratic dialogue and social construction. Values, goals, and principles are considered in view of the transition from an non-ecosystemic to an ecosystemic model of culture.
