[Xmca-l] Re: MCA Issue 3 article for discussion Re-started

I sent a youtube video of Susan Hoff exploring passivity within belonging to constituted (instituted?) worlds.

John William Miller believed:
If one does not begin in community, philosophy will never arrive at community and so will not be able to revise or improve any human community. Miller’s relational back and forth pairs the human act to prior community (common beginning).
This seems to follow Susan Hoff’s theme. However, Susan adds the focus on passivity (let it be) as a necessary relation to activity (taking to heart).
A spiral theme of loose threads relationally intertwined in the back and forth.
May generate a quality of education which has withdrawn from public discourse as liberalism has been ascendant.

John Stuart Mill notes the "empty husks" of education prevalent at the time (1836), that have come down through the ages.  here's his solutions:


CIVILIZATION Section 6, John Stuart Mill, Civilization<https://www.laits.utexas.edu/poltheory/jsmill/diss-disc/civilization/civilization.s06.html>
Civilization John Stuart Mill Section 6 [Improving British education] These things must bide their time. But the other of the two great desiderata, the regeneration ...

dense, but illuminating one hundred and eighty years later.
