    Visual Thinking Strategies: Gadamer’s filosofie ‘Kennis doet pijn’ *
    Looking at things with a critical eye, thinking, and presenting your view with well-conceived arguments. These are skills that you can put to good use the rest of your life. They are central in four Critical thinking workshops by Academic Forum on Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS); you will be able to practice them, too. This fourth and last workshop specifically addresses the painful process of letting go of old certainties in the scholarly process. Attention will be paid to the inaccessibility of truth by scientific methods and the impossibility of getting to grips with it, no matter how hard we try. (language: Dutch) Read more

    Visual Thinking Strategies: Gadamer’s filosofie ‘Kennis doet pijn’ *
    Kritisch kijken, denken en goed beargumenteerd jouw visie bepleiten. Het zijn skills die je de rest van je leven kunt gebruiken. In vier Kritisch denken-workshops van Academic Forum over Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) staan ze centraal en kun je ze oefenen. In deze laatste workshop van vier wordt specifiek ingegaan op het pijnlijke proces van het loslaten van oude zekerheden in het wetenschappelijke proces. Stilgestaan wordt tevens bij de onmogelijkheid werkelijk tot de waarheid door te dringen, deze te leren kennen, hoezeer we ook ons best doen. (voertaal: Nederlands) Read more
