Art and Human Nature

From: Strange Tools Art and Human Nature by Alva Noe"
... both philosophy and choreography aim at the same thing - a kind of understanding
…but they do it in different neighborhoods of our existence. Philosophy is the choreography of ideas and concepts and beliefs…the organized activity of our thought and talk. Choreography is the philosophy of movement. Both philosophy and choreography take their start from the fact that we are organized but we are not the authors of our organization…both…study our organization; philosophy and choreography are organizational and reorganizational practices. They are practices ( not activities) - methods of research- aiming at illuminating the ways we find ourselves organized and so, also, the ways we might reorganize ourselves.”
