-- [ Page 4 ] --

The lens of learning to learn offers the initial elements of an approach to this problem, although it cannot offer a determinate solution to it. Where the constraints created by a dirigiste vision preclude the flourishing of distinct forms of life and thwart the expression of self-identity, the approach of learning to learn offers in contrast new degrees of freedom with which to create new institutional arrangements that foster both self-expression and problem solving. Arrangements that foster learning to learn make it possible, in the setting of the world and of nations, to discover by experiment how to belong to a modern world society and yet to be oneself.

Democracy’s challenge today is to find ways in which self-determination and self-expression, both for individuals and for societies, can be made compatible with practical advance. We propose that experimentalism offers such a means.

This much is certain: If dirigisme is a treacherous guide to developing an economy, it is the outright enemy of democratic renewal. For that reason alone, to be democrats today, we must also be experimentalists, learning to learn.
