De seres sociales a seres comunitarios

15 marzo, 2010

Encontré esta cita en el libro de H. Rheingold The virtual community y me parece muy buena para fundamentar la necesidad del aprender a ser que destaca Jhon Seely Brown como efecto educativo – junto al aprender sobre- de las comunidades de practica. En este caso se trataría del valor social del aprender a ser… comunidad.

We know the rules of community; we know the healing effect of community in terms of individual lives. If we could somehow find a way across the bridge of our knowledge, would not these same rules have a healing effect upon our world? We human beings have often been referred to as social animals. But we are not yet community creatures. We are impelled to relate with each other for our survival. But we do not yet relate with the inclusivity, realism, self-awareness, vulnerability, commitment, openness, freedom, equality, and love of genuine community. It is clearly no longer enough to be simply social animals, babbling together at cocktail parties and brawling with each other in business and over boundaries. It is our task–our essential, central, crucial task–to transform ourselves from mere social creatures into community creatures. It is the only way that human evolution will be able to proceed.

M. Scott Peck
