The knowledge and intuition we use to navigate the world
Attention is an art form

The ethos underlying the idea that “attention is an art form” and, specifically “how we become skillful perceivers and doers, people who know, in the moment, the right details to attend to and the right actions to take” is very similar to a core theme within Bill Torbet’s Action Inquiry, as explained here.

From the About section of their Facebook Page:

The Side View is about the knowledge and intuition we use to navigate the world. It’s about how our minds meet the world, but it’s also about how our minds, when trained in the right way, change how we perceive what’s around us and within us. In other words, The Side View is about how we become skillful perceivers and doers, people who know, in the moment, the right details to attend to and the right actions to take.

The idea is that we can develop new ways of making sense of things, ways that change what we’re able to do in the world. From our perspective, sense-making is its own kind of craft, and the medium of this craft isn’t paint or stone or wood, but your own perception. Perception on this view is a skill you can shape through practice. We see our ability to pay attention to things as an art of its own. It’s an art of looking at things in a certain way.

These are good tag lines for The Side View—attention is an art form; perception is a skill—but when we dig deeper into what this approach really means, to what it makes possible for us in our lives, we find something more interesting: When we start to look at our own perception in this way, we find that we can actually take hold of some of these dynamics and change them. In a way, the whole process of learning is about creating these transformations in perception. The Side View is about making sense of this process. By looking at perception and experience, we’re making sense of how we make sense.

Description:

From Adam’s web page:

I run a publication called The Side View. We are an independent publisher that integrates theory and practice, while running parallel to academic and public conversations. We publish a journal, online and in print, and a podcast that explores the nature of perception and attention by having conversations with architects, cognitive scientists, athletes, philosophers, contemplatives, and more. We have an online shop, and you can learn more about us here, or on TwitterFacebookPatreon, and most podcast platforms. 

I am also a philosopher by training. My first book is contracted with Revelore Press, and will be finished in the fall of 2020. The book is about askēsis (exercise) and its relation to perception. Askēsis aims at a transformation of perception through a variety of exercises, including contemplative practice, philosophy, athletics, art, and more. These practices are concerned with the development of our inner and outer senses. You can read a draft excerpt here. I write about these themes on my blog, on Medium, and on Twitter.
