Epistemology is a socio-cultural phenomenon that has dominated western civilization from the Greeks until the current century. Science, its most important product, is and no doubt will continue to be, a lasting contribution to civilization. But like all cultural developments, it is not universal in its usefulness. Indeed, when imposed on areas to which it has no relevance, it has effectively paralyzed human development. Modern psychology embodies this paralysis.

Newman and Holzman, Beyond Narrative Therapy to Performed Conversations
In the 1990’s Newman and Holzman authored two seminal books, Unscientific Psychology and The End of Knowing, which together challenged the contemporary scientific paradigm of psychology and put forth a cultural-performatory alternative: social therapeutics, which is ”a distinctly unscientific psychology; indeed, not a psychology at all but a qualitatively new kind of play, a continuous uncommodified performance of subjectivity.” Now some twenty years later their developmental methodology and the grassroots organizing that has grown up alongside it are being adapted and applied worldwide.

In this advanced 12-week course we will explore the foundations of Newman and Holzman's social therapeutics and its current practices. Led by Institute co-founder Lois Holzman, the course will include guest faculty whose work in diverse communities and environments in the US and internationally has been informed by this approach.

Among the topics to be explored are:

Creating development and developmental communities
Problems with epistemology
A new ontology of performance
Self and otherness
Commodified emotions and performed emotionality
The revolutionary nature and value of performance, play and improvisation

A hallmark of the Institute's study programs are its participants - coming from every continent and multiplicity of fields. We welcome applicants - researchers, scholars and practitioners - from a range of disciplines.

A 12-Week Developmental Challenge

We begin with an intensive study of key sections of Unscientific Psychology: A Cultural-Performatory Approach to Understanding Human Life and The End of Knowing: A New Developmental Way of Learning, which will engage you in a reconstructing/deconstructing of psychology, exposing its dehumanization and the methodology that is creating social therapeutics as a humanizing force.

With the support of presentations by, and intensive dialogue with, guest faculty, we continue with an exploration of contemporary on-the-ground projects that incorporate playful philosophizing and social therapeutics in their daily activity and engage in practice today's political and psychological climate of identity politics, hyper-diagnosis and political correctness.
