The Sunday Times, October NSF This universality means that knowledge in the form of techne can be taught more or less completely as a formal discipline. The rules of techne provide for theoretical knowledge that may or may not have practical applications. Scott, p. Aristotle singled out navigation and medicine as two activities in which the practical wisdom of long experience is indispensable to superior performance.

    Socrates evidently believed that the interaction between teacher and students that we now call the Socratic method, and not the resulting text, is philosophy. Scott, pp. Let us begin speaking again, communicating in mutual and open dialogue rather than tracing the linguistic signs of an intelligible but dead universe of thought into its labyrinth.

    I remember as a young man growing up entering the workforce as a blue-collar worker. Working in various trades in the oil-fields, auto-mechanic, carpenter, cook, welder, miner, glass-worker, etc. Notions passed down from generation to generation, ways of holding a glass globule just so-so in the furnace, the time to turn or pull it out, to work the breath, the turning of the stem, etc.

One could write a history of such nefarious subjects as pickpocketing that would show in another way the tricks of the trade, the nuances and ways of deceit and deception, subterfuge and displacement. Of magicians and slide-of-hand street magick, cards, levitation, disappearance, etc. The sense of facing strength and power and using cunning and trickery to reverse the order of natural outcomes by a form of intelligence that some would see as both treacherous, cowardly, and womanish the Greeks were admittedly sexist ibid.

    As Detienne and Vernant will describe it:. With all the weight of acquired experience that it carries, it involves thought that is dense, rich and compressed.
