Cultivation as a Paradigm For Sustainable Production and Ecological Human Formation
Starting from the Phenomenology of Life and Taking an Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Perspective

The real possibility of the new philosophical and operational paradigm of cultivation, flowing from the phenomenology of life of Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, emerged with particular force at the 64th Conference of Phenomenology held at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan, October 1-3, 2014 and dedicated to exploring “Ecophenomenology. Life, Human Life, Post-Human Life in the Harmony of the Cosmos.”

Based on both the immediate intuition of the constructivism of life as it coincides with our own creative constructivism and the discovery that there is a unique logos that, as a living metamorphic force of ontopoiesis, induces and regulates the becoming and development of being in its interality, such a new paradigm could finally promote an evolutive ontological conception and, consequentially, a theoretical and effective practice of “cultivation” of the still unexpressed virtualities of being. In this way, the spontaneous establishment of ecologically sustainable interventions will be favoured, oriented and guided by those affordances that each being – inorganic, organic, and human – manifests, if appropriately investigated. Through the paradigm of cultivation, therefore, we can be able to validly support, in terms of global sustainability of development, the current forms of meaning-bestowal to the world in order to stimulate further transformations that are ecologically favourable.

Of special interest are contributions that 1) theoretically delineate the crucial characteristics of the paradigm of cultivation, especially in reference to the phenomenology of life of A.-T. Tymieniecka; 2) propose, in any field, examples of practical application of this paradigm, that reveal specific properties of it, and in general, its tendency to validly increase and support sustainability of production and human development.
