    Alternative Education Options

    I’ve started to notice more and more private education companies being founded that offer alternatives to the established education system. So far I know of the following: The UnCollege Gap Year: “A 12-month skills-building regimen designed to equip young adults to succeed in the 21st century.” Praxis: “An intensive 10-month program for entrepreneurial young people who want real-world career experience and the best of online education all in one.” Exosphere‘s Entrepreneurship Boot Camps: “An 8-week program at Exosphere’s headquarters in Chile for people who are committed to setting their lives on a new course, combining technical skill acquisition, real business practice, and deep philosophical and intellectual reflection.” I myself work at Exosphere and we’re noticing how more and more people become interested in these alternative programs. What other options are out there that I’m missing?

Love, Hate, and the State: An Introduction to Emotions, Punishment, and Social Change Session 6: The framework thus far raises the question, “If institutions can hold us responsible, can we hold institutions responsible?” In this session, we wade into new territory with several examples of intuitive holding-responsible from the individual-to-institution framework, and the application of methodological individualism on institutions. Join Zak Slayback for the continuation of this series Thursday, December 11th at 9:30pm ET!
