Like water & oil: Merging Human Science insights with Natural Science (Engineering) thinking …the experiential way

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only

Abstract

Oil and water: a common expression describing two things that do not combine well. In this paper I will discuss some of the wins and losses; successes and failures in my efforts to explore the contested territory between Human Science, abductive thinking and Natural Science, logical preconceptions within a Danish postgraduate engineering stream. This course was designed to help young engineers to step outside their normal positivist system of thinking and to explore, embrace or at least suspend judgement on a form of emotional/meta-physical logic. Students were introduced to practical (logical) methods for developing deeper insight into specific human experiences and to apply this genuinely human-centred perspective to their 'engineered' solutions.
