Change and Industrial Society by Dr Donald Schon followed by questions from an Invited audience
6: What can we know about Social Changef
In the present situation, Dr Schon argues, we must be willing to regard every theory that we develop as a perspective that can shift at the same time as we are taking it as a basis for action; to use ourselves as informational instruments. be attentive to our own feelings as sources of data. In this attitude, he suggests, lies the germ of ah ethic for knowing.
(This the last of the 1970 Reith Lectures , recorded at the Society of Industrial Artists and Designers in London, will be published in The Listener dated 24 December)
