A metaphoric example: an ecology of strategic insights


Sustaining Higher Orders of Policy Consensus through Metaphor: towards a new language of governance (Part #5)

Using the ecological metaphor, for example, one may ask how each political tradition fits into the political ecosystem. What vital role does each perform within that ecosystem?

Note that this is not an exercise in political syncretism. Rather it is a recognition that there are people who, for whatever cultural or psycho-social reason, derive benefit from one pattern of strategic insights rather than from another. The complementarity of each approach may be vital to the sustainability of development and governance.
