La formación, en la raíz del alma organizativa

El alma de las organizaciones

Just one exception to the English language here. I’m currently reading a short handbook by Javier Fernández Aguado, which was given to me by Josep Lozano, organizer of the infamous Expoelearning event in Spain when he came to participate in the Dokeos Users Days América in June 2009. The book is called “El alma de las organizaciones” and is describing what makes the spirit of organizations. In particular, there are two paragraphs which get close enough to what we are trying to facilitate with Chamilo:

El planeta se encuentra en mano de los audaces, no de los excesivamente cuerdos. El positivismo puro y duro conduce al pesimismo, tras avanzar por el lamentable camino […] de los razonamientos paralizantes. En realidad, nos convertimos en profetas de nuestro propio destino: llegamos en cierto modo donde queremos llegar.

La verdadera sabiduría, fruto de una formación ampliamente asumida, reclama algo de ebriedad, de alienación verdadera (de alius: capacidad de hacerse otro, para contemplar la realidad con objectividad). Un cierto grado de locura es preciso para no limitarse a la reiteración apática y cuasi desesperante de lo ya intentado por otros.

I’m leaving it to the reader to translate this using Google Translate or whatever seems more appropriate, but it kind of confirms a few things I’ve been thinking about during the last few months.
