transformation rather than negation or new dualism

Here's to 'dynamism."  Concerns equally well expressed/appropriate.  How to blend "radical skepticism" with "putting one foot in front of the other"? Perhaps along the lines of Writing Descartes?   "a new kind of dualism."  Not if I can help it.  Perhaps instead "mind" comfortably (rather than "inconveniently") housed in the body/world?   And therefore both drawing from it and able to alter it?  Yes, the ambition being to achieve "some yet to be articulated vision of 'education'" that genuinely contributes to transformation.  By reminding ourselves and others that "truths' are not only "temporarily serviceable hypotheses' but also the grist from which we can conceive  and so try out new ways of being.
