I’m teaching the first session of my “Psychology of Transformative Learning” course for graduate students at Meridian tomorrow. So in honor of that, thought I’d provide a quote from Derrida. Enjoy.
Language is an intrinsically unreliable structure for communication. Real meaning exists in a dimension that transcends reason and language. It is a ‘dimension of not-knowing’ and this domain of not-knowing is the appropriate domain for true education. Creativity and transformation require entering that dimension – going beyond language and reason and finding the common ground between all living things from which real creativity and profound transformation emerge.
That’s where I like to play.
