The Challenge:

To move toward science seen as ...

  • Primarily process rather than content knowledge
    • Rigor without oppressiveness
    • Concreteness without lifelessness
    • Playfulness without meaninglessness
  • Something that everyone can draw from and be empowered by
  • Something to which everyone can contribute
  • Engaged with rather than isolated from other spheres of human activity
