Eight Originations ~ Humanity Accepting

This is a community inquiry post inviting comments and reflection. It concerns a new modality which was generated to examine how a new idea for humanity (ie apithology) becomes accepted – moving from its first iteration in origin to coherent and completed origination. As with many apithology modalities, while initially conceived of at the humanity

Beyond Human Learning ~ Generative Apithagogy

There have already been many benefits from our inquiry into the generative learning designs for Apitholo ~ The Center for Humanity Learning. Because that forum is for a different outcome, it asks some different questions about what is happening for humans when they do learning. In recently reading the current leading thinkers on learning theory,

Generative Tension ~ Role in Creativity

Occasionally in apithology praxis we take a break from the generation of new theory and modalities and look backwards to previous work by ‘pre-a^’ researchers to see the many benefits of their contributions and efficacy in generativity theory. In abductive logics this backstory relevance is called ‘consilience’, where a new hypothesis while novel and seen

Apithology of Organizational Learning

For many years the role of generative learning in organisational development has been central in the testing of apithology theory and practice. This post examines some challenges to our own assumptions about how learning occurs and proposes some different thinking on the apithological ethics in the approach to defensive routines. Some existing assumptions on learning

Apithology Business Boot-Camp

This last weekend Will and Adam did the Red Hill Reconnaissance for the 10 Year Apithology Event. This arduous task involved an extensive investigation of possible venues for various social meetings of apithology guests at the October 10Y Convention. Actually, we only got to two places, as an extended fine-dining lunch with views of the

Arriving as: Full, blissed, happy, tired, in healthy tension, just. Curiosity about, inquiring and helping, setting intention, depth of holding, threads of life living life, what should an inquirer be doing, how should an inquirer be being, happiness as purposefulness, the ethics of intervention, the ethicality of non-intervening, where does the purposefulness come from, unfolding

What is apithology?

We recently commissioned two worldwide experts to discuss in a generative dialogue the profoundly difficult question: ‘What is apithology?’  After several years of conversation (and over five hundred blog posts and thousands of hours of transcription) the results have been put together into this short video presentation. We hope you enjoy it immensely …  

Apithological Inquiry

The International Society for the Systems Sciences (ISSS) journal of the collected proceedings of the 2012 Annual Conference in San Jose has just been published. Within those proceedings is the following article on Apithological Inquiry that might be of interest to researchers: “Apithological Systems Theory: Learnings from Ecology” Paper presented at the 56th Conference of the International
