On Monday, December 10th, 2012, please join us in celebrating and discussing the recent work of Dr. Elizabeth Anne Kinsella, Dr. Allan Pitman, Dr. Kathy Hibbert & Dr. Fred Ellett.
All are invited to this seminar and holiday celebration in which we will discuss the book Phronesis as professional knowledge: Practical wisdom in the professions.
Phronesis is the Aristotelian term for practical wisdom. In this session the contributors consider the ways in which practical wisdom offers a generative possibility for thinking about the professional knowledge of practitioners.
The question considered is: “If we take phronesis (practical wisdom) seriously as an organising framework for professional knowledge, what are the implications for professional education and practice?” A multiplicity of understandings emerge as to how practical wisdom might be understood, applied, and extended in today’s world. We welcome you to join this conversation.
