|Samenvatting||This book presents the outcome of a European conference on Moving Worldviews, 28-20 November 2005, Soesterberg, the Netherlands.|
The conference searched for answers to the polycrisis that the globe faces in terms of ecology, social conflicts and security.
Questions addressed at the conference include: What is the relation between the polycrisis and the dominant worldview in the West? What new insights have emerged that might lead to worldviews with greater potential to deal with the polycrisis? What new insights are emerging from innovative research, learning and rural development? Can inter-cultural and inter-scientific dialogue contribute to changing the worldviews of the West? What are effective transition strategies in research, rural development, education and international cooperation?
The workshop concluded that the Western worldview is indeed directly related to the polycrisis. Its mechanistic and dualistic view of the world is at odds with new insights from quantum physics and transdisciplinarity and with more holistic worldviews from other contemporary cultures. Conventional and mainstream methods of research and systems of governance could derive great benefit from these insights and the lessons of social learning.
