Social dreaming matrices happen as part of conferences, as part of daily work in organisations, as part of teaching programmes, in open public spaces and possibly in venues still untried. Social dreaming allows for the fragments of dreams to be seen as a potential synthesis of confusing and frightening social phenomena, helping to brace for the cyclical arrival of new and unpredictable social realities.
Including a coherent epistemology to support the theoretical principles of the field, the book reflects upon and extends the theory and philosophy behind the method, as well as discussing new research in the area, and how social dreaming practice is conducted in a range of localities, situations and circumstances.
The book is published by Routledge and can be obtained from Karnac Books. See more..
