I Survived Praxis Module 4…
… and I’ve Learned So Much!
Now you get how intense month four is, but let me tell you why it was so valuable and important!
Each week, my cohort and I went over a different overarching topic. These weeks allowed us to do a deep dive into some pretty important ideas that could change how to interact with the world. Wait, there’s more! Sure it could have just been a reading assignment or a video to watch, but no – We are Praxians!
Week 1: An Intro to Philosophy and Opening Up to New Ideas.
Week 2: Critical Reasoning and The Structure of Arguments.
Week 3: Art and Commerce in History and Everything Inbetween.
Week 4: What it Means to Create and What That Means Going Forward.
An Intro to Philosophy and Opening Up to New Ideas.
Critical Reasoning and The Structure of Arguments.
Having a deeper understanding of these things has put me in a position where I have to (thankfully) think more deeply about what I say I believe. Now I can more clearly defend believing in anything I claim to support.
Art and Commerce in History and Everything Inbetween.
I wasn’t surprised by any of that, but I was surprised to learn from a series of lectures, called Culture and Commerce, that art is also about creating value for others to enjoy. It is not just about you and your ideas of beauty. Instead, it is also about feeding the market what they want. The people buying your goods affect what exactly your products morph to become.
The Culture and Commerce lectures taught me that we’ve had the arts and the economy intertwined since the times of Shakespeare and earlier!
What it Means to Create and What That Means Going Forward.
That’s the best part! Lastly, week four talks all about what it means to “copy, transform and combine” other creations to create another kind of value. This concept is then followed up by a series of posts talking through the future of technology. More specifically, how it will continue to grow and take over many industries!
I can see the world differently now that I’ve gone through such a big crash course in philosophy, value creation, the direction of the future and how my role can play a part in all of that.
