Socratic Design is an approach that combines “teoria” (the Greek word meaning: “way of looking at things”) and practice in an integral way. We usually have a theory and then apply the theory in concrete stuff. Theory and practice are then separated with a higher level reserved for theory.
In Socratic Design we follow the three dimensions of Aristoteles “teoria”, poesia and praxis: where poesis is the art of creating and praxis the art of doing and producing. We need to be aware that the world is based in and with these three dimensions. Our whole reality – even our economy – is based on assumptions or “teoria.”
