To those of you who practice P4C/CPI the idea of "thinking to gather together" should be readily appreciated. You will want to know in what sense we will make this practice a game. The short answer is that, following David Greber's definition of a game as "a purely rule-governed activity", we are simply creating the conditions for people to host their own inquiries in a shared public frame. After a shared 'stimulus' prompt activity, pods will run independently but will share back (1) their questions and (2) short narrative summaries of their inquiries. At the closing of a Sympodsium, individuals will also be given the chance to ask 'just questions' to the assembly. Just Questions are provocations to further thought, but are offered to all and hang unanswered.
There are two distinct paths for your participation. We need people to play the game and we need people who would like to become facilitators/hosts of this model. For those already practicing CPI public philosophy, this could be an opportunity to connect your groups with others and broaden your impact.
Consequently, for our playtesting, we have two stages. Firstly, we need players to join a fully virtual 90-minute Zoom call. We are seeking 10-20 players for this play-test. Secondly, we need players who can host their own CPI pods for a HYBRID model. This latter would be most suitable for people with facilitation training, as each in-person pod will require someone to facilitate their inquiry. The dates and times for these play-tests are TBD, but since this model relies on hosting parties we expect the playtests to run on weekend nights/days.Organizer
