Four Modes of Understanding

Etymology—the exploration of the forces that produce what the culture validates as knowledge.

Pattern—the recognition of the connecting patterns and the relationships that undergird the lived world.

Process—the cultivation of new ways of reading the world that attempt to make sense of both ourselves and contemporary society.

{Reconstructive} Contextualization—the appreciation that knowledge can never stand alone or be complete in and of itself.
