What is Praxis Circle?

WHY PRAXIS?

Praxis Circle is quite unlike most other organizations addressing worldview. If you become a Praxis Circle Member, you will discover, deconstruct, explore, learn, contribute to, shape, and grow your own worldview through necessarily objective and granular reasoning. You will improve your influence in personal and larger groups. Over time, Praxis will assist you in taking a broad look at the most influential worldviews in the West and even around the world.

Praxis is the only effort dedicated to helping you become a humble, kind, understanding, and able warrior for yourself, your family (as applicable), your friends, and even your politics. You will learn to think globally and in detail about all of the aspects of life that worldview impacts, which is many to most of them. In the end, there is no other way to help and serve yourself and others, except through confidence and ability gained through personal knowledge and experience.

A warning: Praxis is not for the faint of heart, the unserious, the incurious, the unemotional, or the unfeeling. Most important, we will seek to have fun with worldview.

It is written: The more certain you are, the more you should resist the temptation to silence those with whom you disagree.

This is the Praxis way . . . please join us. You will impact the journey’s pathway.

SELECTED CONTRIBUTOR PROFILES

Contributor Profile videos provide a brief introduction to Praxis Contributors’ work, thoughts, and interviews. Below are Profiles of several Expert Contributors. Some comments may shock or even offend you. Praxis Circle endorses no Contributor comments, except in formal and clearly labeled opinions. All Contributor comments are for the purposes of examining worldviews themselves, and we believe our Contributors’ opinions, no matter how dissimilar from yours, will help you examine and build your own worldview.

While most of our Contributors are “gentle persons,” again, some of their comments may shock or even offend you. If so, we have done our job! The reason for this is that many worldviews conflict (even violently). As a result, if Praxis Circle is doing its job in providing objective presentation, you will find points of view that are quite contrary to your own – 180 degrees in the other direction.

Moreover (and unfortunately), Praxis Circle offers no “safe spaces.” This would be impossible given our mission. Why? Well, in the words of Western greats such as Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Hypatia, “Important worldview ideas remain in the public square to be considered . . . whether you remain there in body or spirit or not.”

Finally, we suggest that you treat your time on this website like you would as a spectator or player of the great American pastime, baseball – your time should involve good, fun, relaxed activity with a beginning and end, but without time constraints, unless you impose them.

Above all, get into the pace of each Contributor’s comments and hear them out. Then mull them over – turn them over in your mind over sufficient time to get their benefits.

In doing so, given each Contributor’s claim or statement, ask yourself: What are the claim’s or argument’s presuppositions that could somehow make the particular claim true or good? (And remember: Praxis Circle endorses no argument presented.)

Featured: Sam Baron
SAMUEL BARON

Dr. Samuel H. Baron (1921-2017) was a Professor Emeritus of Russian history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He focused his research career on the Russian Revolution of 1917 and Western influences on Muscovite Russia in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. He was interviewed because he was an expert in Marxism’s influence on Russian and Soviet history particularly, and European generally, and because he was a naturalist social democrat and great friend of Praxis Circle team going back to the 1970’s.

COURSES

Praxis Circle offers Members a series of Courses that explore the worldview concept and assist in development of one’s own worldview. Praxis Courses are self-taught or organized in groups, allow Members to invest as much or as little time as desired, offer opportunities for Member and Teacher conversation, and apply worldview concepts to ongoing personal, political, and social issues. Praxis Circle has designed an initial series of courses and will structure future courses based on Member interests.

Not for the faint of Heart!


• How have you formed your views on life’s essential issues?
• How do your views on these issues affect your daily life?
• How can you better understand the views of others and meet your personal goals?

Praxis’ community’s goals are to know ourselves and to understand before being understood. Praxis Circle expands personal and group insight by focusing on the continuous worldview loop: how worldview truth assumptions and reality shape each other. This is the process that establishes personal and community goals and determines whether they are met; it establishes everything from culture to social structure to meaning in life, and it greatly influences ones level of happiness and fulfillment.
