Actionable Knowledge

Major Challenge

TO ASSESS THE REVEALING OF NEW KNOWLEDGE IS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO DETERMINE ITS PROCESS-FEASIBILITY. IF DEEMED WORKABLE, WE WILL ADAPT IT FOR ACTIONABILITY AND THEN MAKE IT AVAILABLE ACROSS DIVERSE SPECTRUMS OF SOCIETY. THIS WILL CHALLENGE PEOPLE'S CHERISHED BUT OUTMODE ASSUMPTIONS AND, NOT RELENTING, WILL COMPOUND TO RESIST CHANGE IN WAYS THAT FURTHER INPEDE HUMANITY’S WAY FORWARD. THEREFORE, MORAL COURAGE IS REQUIRED TO SUSTAIN THE PROCESS.

The Paradox of Internal Conflict

Internal conflict within a country is inherently disintegrative. Yet, paradoxically, no national integration is possible without internal conflict. The paradox arises because while conflict itself has a propensity of jointly looking for a way out of a crisis, of seeing your own mutual hostility subside to a level of mutual tolerance, of being intensely conscious of each other's positions and yet sensing the need to bridge the gulf⎯these are experiences which, over a period of time, should help two groups of people move forward into a relationship of deeper integration. ⎯Mazrui's Theory of Intercultural Relations

Approach

Actionable knowledge enhances social frameworks to overcome the dichotomy of reducing learning (knowledge acquisition) to a rigid set of rules and procedures. With collaborative efforts made diversity-inclusive, innovative initiatives are created which reinforce ‘Community Build’, a challenging process where new knowledge transforms as actionable, and is then applied in real-world settings to render new era requirements.

◆ Actionable knowledge requires devising long-term plans to achieve viable goals. This comes about over time based on how ideas change because of the need, experience, and circumstance associated with social change and its related pressures. The actionable knowledge framework then begins to take shape, to innovate and strengthen human understanding. Based on this approach, long-term procedures for milestone accomplishment are created, to include phased-in objectives. Analysts make adjustments as needed based on their analysis of accomplishments, milestone cycles, and objectives.

◆ The knowledge framework is adjusted as needed based on new ideas and understandings as they arise. This gives credence to how ideas find expression based on time, experience, and circumstance.

Dialetics

Dialectics along with pragmatism, provide the means to aspire higher levels of knowledge attainment. Together they encourage discourse, philosophical pursuits, disciplinary inquiries, visionary insights, and value judgements to advance human society.

◆ With dialectics, various methods of reasoning and discussion are used to discover the truth.  Pragmatism test theories or beliefs in terms of the probability of their success through practical application to achieve a stated aim.

◆ This effort, characterized as an intelligent and enabling exercise, reveals what seems reasonable, doable, and practical over the long-term to advance human development in a global context, nay-saying being a non-starter.

Framework

Actionable knowledge framework embodies the role to reinvigorate societal growth and development. Its various functionalities are designed to bring focus to fundamental issues of existence: humanity’s primary purpose (i.e., to advance civilization), its oneness as a species, being spiritually endowed, seeks justice in all undertakings, pursues social equality, and devise plans for long-term sustainability, among others.

◆ Elements relevant to social action are those that define the character of progress—‘that civilization has a material and a spiritual dimension’ and that humanity, now in adolescence, based on these criteria, must strive to achieve collective maturity.

◆ A contributing factor to the success of this process lies in building unified relationships across boundaries (real and imagined), among and within human diversity, and this to occur both within human consciousness and within the structures that makeup society’s institutions.

Actionable Knowledge

Knowledge develops over time related to pressures associated with societal needs and advances made in the sciences. A unified and inclusive diversity can determine its positive effects on an individual and group basis.
