Dear Mr. Macintosh,
You wrote: "The Laws of Form demonstrates that even an enquiry into railway switches, if pursued in the right spirit can lead to wisdom"
I haven't yet read the book you refer to, but I am goin to do so.
I just want here to let you know that your intervention, especially when referring to wisdom and ...railway switches or any other artifacts, is precisely in the sense of my forwarding, las week, of the Group advertisment to about 1500 PhD level designers around the world. The purpose of my initiative was to invite my fellow Designers to start thinking ways in which wisdom could be added to the knowledge and skills we already have on shaping the material environment of humanity.
In other words, I am another one who do not understand the Group call as aimed at professional philosophers only, of which I am not neither!
