Participants in the Fall 2018 offering (session one) reviewed the broad sweep of challenges facing human collective life. However, greatest attention was given over to the essential tool human communities have to create effective responses to situations arising out of social life. Communication, that is to say, language, is the formative instrument of public discourse which makes possible coordinated social action. Using language (our linguistic instrument), we set about to remedy aspects of the human condition which require redress. Aspects or problems of social living include areas as cultural conflict and abuse, contagion, poverty, the denial of basic human rights and the denial or limitation of access (for example, in housing, education, employment and healthcare). Session one participants designated Racism for continued discussion in this ongoing series.
