(Re)thinking worldview 9

The next part is devoted to ‘Witness’. Chapter 9 kicks this section of by looking at ‘Engagement and beyond’. The term witness conjures up so many different ideas and methods. Not all of them culturally appropriate. Bertrand wants to go beyond method: ‘it’s not a method or technique’ (p. 182). He draws the distinction between being a witness – having the information - and bearing witness – sharing the information.

He wants us to move from being consumers of to being contributors to culture via being self-conscious about culture and being a critic of culture. This process follows along similar lines of this book from worldview through wisdom to witness.
