Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

I attach various papers of interest by Paul Cilliers. These include:

* From a restricted to a general understanding of complexity, presented at the World Knowledge Forum, 2008

* The Complex "I", (with T. de Villiers) in The Political subject, edited by W. Wheeler, pp. 226-245, London: Lawrence & Wishart, 2000.

* Complexity, Ethics and Justice. Journal for Humanistics (Tijdschrift voor Humanistiek), Vol. 5 (2004), nr. 19 (Oct. 2004), p. 19 - 26 (Amsterdam: Uitgeverij SWP)

There is another very good and relevant paper on modest positions in postmodernism (what we call a not-knowing position) which I will post in a reply to this message.

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
