In his own words...

In pre-socratic throught already, we find the recognition that for better or worse everything around us keeps changing. In a world where change increasingly is the result of our own making, in particular in relation to our envorinments and with consequences often poorly understood, transformation means not just embracing change but to help balance and moderate it towards better understood outcomes. Historical and methodological perspectives are crucial in all this.
