an ecology of ideas

Our ideas form, grow, and thrive in relationship. Ideas inspire and transform each other and their bio-cultural medium. New ones emerge unexpectedly, some persist, some change, and some are lost, as if they were living ecologies.

The ASC and BIG come together to hold this conference on the relations among ideas as seen from multiple perspectives. We come from many disciplines but have common roots in systems, circularity, reflexivity, language, and social responsibility. We are concerned with the world that arises from how we live our ideas.

In a world rife with factionism and disillusionment, we will engage in conversations that integrate disciplines of knowing while taking into account our histories and considering our futures. We will regard both the parts and the whole that arises from the relations between the parts — and thus becomes the context for all the parts.

ASC and BIG have common interests in dynamic systems of thought, wisdom and learning. We invite you to join us and explore these ideas between 9 and 13 July 2012, at the Asilomar Conference Grounds, California.

This conference website is under construction.

Please come back in January.
