What to work on?

Questions to find a theme

Thinking at the Edge starts from an implicit knowledge or a felt meaning about a theme in a field in which you are experienced. Some of the following questions might be helpful to find a theme to work on with APPLIED TAE:

  • What issue have you been thinking about for a long time?
  • What is the theme which wants to be worked on?
  • Where do you have something important to say, coming out of my experience?
  • Which task do you have to work on or which idea do you want to develop further?
  • What interests, fascinates or irritates you?
  • What are you especially good at?
  • Is there anything which is not convincing you about a common theory?
  • Do you have a question about something? If yes, is there something (a knowing, a vague guess) about where the question is coming from?
