Art Dialogue Methods: Phronèsis and Its Potential for Restoring an Embodied Moral Authority in Local Communities
Muijen, Heidi S. C. A.; Brohm, René
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v46 n3 p349-364 2018
We put forward Art-Dialogue-Methods (ADM) as an inquiry for practical wisdom within communities. It draws from a series of methodological traditions like artistic inquiry, participatory action research and narrative research. The practice of ADM could facilitate healing processes in fractured communities and organisations in today's world. ADM avoids a search from grand overarching solutions, but searches for outcomes as exemplars of the good life. We may find the relevance of this quest in the postmodern macro-context of the globalised world today with tendencies of individualization and neo-liberal markets. The authors explore the potential value of ADM for the development of practical wisdom within communities, by pointing out arguments in philosophical and sociological literature and by means of exemplary cases of ADM-programmes.
