Complexity and Skill

“The richer and more complex the life of a society, the greater is the skill required from the new generation…”Moshe Feldenkrais

 

Dr. Feldenkrais often spoke of his method as a way of learning how to learn.  He questioned educational approaches that rely on memorization and mimicry, favoring instead the use of experimentation and self-discovery.  He often noted that unless you can do something three ways, you do not know how to do it.  He was committed to teaching others how to engage in self-directed learning.
