Immanuel Kant And The Hallucinating Tester - Anders Dinsen
Immanuel Kant, the great German philosopher has a reputation for being pedantic and difficult. But most of us intuitively get the transcendental: That interacting with things always involves the complexity of experiencing and learning. Kant's philosophy supports me, the thinking, imagining, sometimes hallucinating tester collaboratively engaging my team to learn things that matter to people who matter. It is testing for collaborative experiencing, learning, and knowledge. After the talk, we'll be able to say "transcendental" and understand what it means; we'll understand the basics of Kant's philosophy, and we'll know why intuitions sometimes matter more than facts when people collaborate about experiencing and learning.
