Who are we?

Before we introduce ourselves, you take a look at the image of the page and find its main pattern. Because thinking is communication with oneself. Thereby a whole system of your beliefs and not the single one is in play.

If such a system of beliefs has been aquired, then, when faced with a uniquely new situation, not foreseen by us, you will be able to combine several of these beliefs in a new combination in order to arrive at a novel solution.

The solution is novel in the sense that, before that situation arose, no one, including us, had reason to think through what an appropriate solution would be for that situation, or what the result of applying those beliefs in that situation would be.

Dagmar, Ivan

We have been dealing with constructivism and constructionism since 2015.

Their critical point is, that motivation mustn’t be neither suggestive (because that would be only a stimulation), nor mustn’t leave the learner at the mercy of himself/herself.

Because thus it degrades his most valuable potential, a potential of reflective intelligence, which enables his/her possibility to develop towards the value-oriented personality from within, by self-creation.

Without it, he/she can only work towards a ‚common sense‘, managed by the fascinating stimuli from outside, e.g. by populism, marketing, etc.


So we offer him/her only what can be verified self-experientialy. That ethics and expertise mustn’t be separated, because once separated, they no longer hold together well, when they are then glued together again.

This new term, which considers expertise and ethics as one object in a similar sense to space-time, i.e. not the sum or product of these two terms, is the only hyperparameter of the ETRI – of its new proceptual paradigm, see section Examples and Inspiration.
