Society, Somatics, Movement
Any type of organisational theory or practice soon starts to break conventional boundaries. Organisations aren't simply places where we work, of course. All kinds of social, economic and political groups (up to society at large) qualify as organisations and demonstrate many of the behaviours that we associate with 'conventional' organisations.
At the same time, organisations are largely (but not exclusively) made up of people - so what applies to organisations also applies to people.
Systems Thinking, which informs many Triarchy books, has been extended by a number of our authors and developed in ways which are rather more useful for individuals and society. One of the most important developments has been the shift away from seeing the organisation and the individual human as a fixed structure and towards seeing them as constantly changing processes.
This process is applied, in particular, in a new collection of books about movement and movement practice based on the work of Javanese movement artist Suprapto Suryodarmo and others.
It's charted in Alain de Vulpian's study of social change over the last 50 years (Towards the Third Modernity)
It's reflected in a number of IFF titles that suggest ways of think about society as an ecosystem that is disrupted by the money economy.
Some relevant terms - each developed in one of our books - include 'Ecological Thinking', 'Tropisms', 'Socioperception', 'Becoming Human', 'Mythogeography', 'Social Acupuncture' and 'The Ecological Body'.
