An Invitation from Phil McShane
Are we ready to putter forward? We can certainly start anywhere, with elementary suggestions and questions. My own concern, as you can sense from the first two FoeRaum essays, is to break forward from lightweight reading, and regularly mis-reading, of the first two pages of Method in Theology. To that your participation in the first forum topic “Thoughts on Method” will contribute in various ways.
The second forum topic focuses on implementing the new science of economics. Questions and suggestions regarding how to correct the prevalent basic flaw and how to communicate the correction to professors of economics and journalists are welcome. An example of correcting the flaw is presented in the Preface to Economics for Everyone (2017, 3rd edition).
A third topic “Advanced Outreaches in Tower Work” invites participants to take their best shot at a functional specialty, or even at a communication that is the fruit of collaboration. This is the only topic where participants are asked to tag their contribution F1-F8 or C9 to indicate what might be called a “puzzled hope.”
The fourth topic is broad and invites reflections on how we, both as individuals and as a community, might contribute to promoting good and undoing evil in actual situations. How might we advance elements of local cultures with the hope of leading to changes in practical policies and plans in them and beyond them?
The most recent topic “Answering Random Questions of LiFe” is an invitation to pose questions on any level of difficulty and in a quite random fashion. Obviously I am directly available by e-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org] should the questions or comments be more particular and private.
