The Harvard professor of philosophy Clarence I. Lewis did offer a philosophical action-oriented framework for this type of reflection. The philosophy of Lewis has very much influenced the originators of the quality movement. This constitutes an interesting link between two important learning-oriented… CONTINUE READING
