Framing of problem Today’s world is extremely complex, among others, because our activities, and also the knowledge that we come in contact about states of the Real that we can no longer ignore (or which we can no longer accept the effects by simply saying, “It’s like that", "It’s the fault of bad luck ", or that there must be geniuses).
We can count on nature to produce varieties of humans or take over the varieties of human design. Currently, this variety is made of top-down mode. There are elites, then those who execute the orders and workers more or less useful, then further down, the sick, the insane, the unemployed, the unable, the unstable.
Would it not be better to think that our societies have varied needs of humans, with varied skills, occupying various places, but everyone is needed to make our societies function?
These varieties can also be experienced as a variety of businesses, in the products and services they have to offer, but also in their modes of organization. Here is a link on the review of a books of authors on this topic:
All periods of change are characterized by the prominence of new models of human beings, new men and the strengthening of old models. Everyone wonders what is the best Man for the times ahead. And everyone wants to participate in the definition, wants to put away important qualities and eliminate behaviors, ways of doing things considered detestable.
At a time when Europe and the world is being transformed and reshaped, we can choose an approach that will put all these competing models, struggling against each other into something mostly violent, to be the only Man possible and eliminate others. We may also decide that these definitions, these fights, these wars are not just for authorized persons, philosophers, men of science, religious, political leaders, but for everyone.
Value proposition / Short definition The Game of the Man, proposed on Edgeryders by philosopher Michel Filippi, is useful because it allows to designing different types of men we need in a society that is, in principle heterogeneous.
Features We can decide that these approaches are not civilized because they ignore a solid basis of our science and what is worth being transmitted around the world to come. No human being is able to completely described by the Real from a single model. Also no human being is able to completely describe Mankind from a single model.
We will be civilized if we can design different Men and articulate them to best describe humanity, so that every human being may choose one of these men, and try to integrate them inside him/her.
About the Game Describe what could your man and what he cannot do.
Support your description with examples of experience.
Justify your description by neuro-cognitive and physical models.
Describe the education process necessary to develop the skills of this man or to eliminate defects of the human whom he will embody.
Show how this man can live by converting resources to products, businesses, institutions,
The qualities that you set, the defects that you want to be eliminate must be possible, for your man to live.
For whom For everyone.
Value for citizens Define oneself with qualities and potential. Recognize oneself in one (or several) human model. Upon learning about the opportunities, grow as much as possible, towards full potential for each citizen.
Value for governance It identifies opportunities for development of the human race, and allows everyone to choose their ideal model of Man, and attempt to reach the highest vision of themselves (towards the goal that every citizens reaches his/her full potential).
Why is it different This project is different because through a game, it allows everyone, every citizen, to find his/her place in society. This project, based on diversity and living together, allows each individual to be valued. Through exploration of the various models of Man, it allows to identify how each type of human being contributes to society, in his/her own way.
