• What do you mean by ‘Cognitive Activism’?

Fundamentally, I mean a form of activism concerning itself with the human relationships with language, relation, knowledge and environment. This necessarily involves a deep commitment to progress in various domains of education, as well as the pioneering of new ways of learning and, I believe, knowing. It is a discipline and a practice organized to reveal new potentials of relational intelligence, as well as the dangers and histories of present potentials and modes. Cognitive activism as I envision it also concerns itself with new ways of using and understanding language in general (and English, specifically).

One of the primary focuses of Cognitive Activism is to enrich our understanding of the powers of holophores (root concepts) in lexicons, and how changes (particularly small corrections) to these elements transform not only the lexicon, but also its functions and experiential applicability.
