PHILOSOPHY: THE ACT OF DESIGNING
The act of conceiving is an active form. There is a passage to the act. It is to act, to do, where there is still nothing.
It is to do in the place of the other and for the other it is, therefore, to respond to a request, an order, a program .... and to give by the answer an intelligible form to what is not yet Express. To design is to use the tools of knowledge to create a form. it is to shape it, to constrain it to make it habitable, acceptable.
The act of conceiving is deciding for others and therefore necessarily knowing others. It is an act of courage, a commitment to future generations. The act of designing is trying to understand the world, and responding to it.
