Example text

Since there are no facts, apart from some screen of ‘values’ which discriminates, selects and relates them, just as there are no values except in relation to some configuration of fact, I use the word appreciation to describe the joint activity which we call knowing and which we sometimes suppose, I think mistakenly, to be a separable, cognitive activity which is ‘value-free’. Since these readinesses are organized into a more or less coherent system, I speak of them as an appreciative system. I sometimes refer to their state at any point of time as their appreciative setting and to any act which expresses them as an appreciative judgement.

Equally, of course, we may fail, partly or even wholly, in our regulative efforts. But even where we fail, I regard the relations in question as having been brought within the political system by the decision to treat them as regulable by acts of public power and thus to separate them from the host of other relations which are left to the regulation of the market or the family or of other determinants. 2 Insights into Appreciation and Learning Systems 31 Even my casual list of examples shows how changeable is the content of a political system thus defined; for most of the relations it mentions were not regarded as necessary or even proper subjects of regulation a few decades ago.

Creatures capable of social learning, on the other hand, are exposed to two streams of education, one stemming from social experience and transmitted usually by the parents; the other stemming from individual experience (and lack of experience); and the two can often be seen in open conflict at levels far below the human. In human beings, both social and individual experience have been vastly amplified through the development of symbolic communication; and (probably from the same cause) the individual has developed means and needs to organise his own experience in the interests of inner consistency and acceptability, as well as external efficiency.
