Examining Relationships Through out 2LA from an HRD Perspective

As far back as Ancient Greece, Aristotle designated the relationships between the structure of language and the nature of the world in a paper titled, Peri hermeneias or Interpetation. In this dissertation relationships and connections are viewed as the central focus in second language development within formal settings. To do this, I will approach inquiry using an HRD perspective:

  1. Psychology
  2. Systems
  3. Economics

While early Phenomenological inquiries tried to bracket notions and concepts to be objective, this approach embraces an embodied researcher as participant in a formal International educational setting.

In this study, Religion is not seen as a communal attempt at uncovering the unknown, but a communal attempt at care and compassion as was the intent of the axial age, by individuals who saw the practical need to confront greed as the American pragmatics following the American Civil war.
