Weapons of Reason
‘Weapons of Reason (WoR), was born out of a desire to understand the world around us, and to use the power of design and creativity to change that world for the better. A fundamental purpose is to unpack and explore the biggest issues facing the world today, and to open up discussions around these issues to as many people as possible.’ (Quoted from: Hüman After All)
‘What is Weapons of Reason?
Weapons of Reason is a project to understand the interconnected challenges shaping our world. We’d like people to read it and then think differently about the world they live in to the extent that they become more active and engaged in both global and local issues. Maybe that’s too abstract. We want Weapons of Reason to be a kick up the backside for anyone who doesn’t yet think they can make positive change in their day-to-day lives and those of the people around them.
What makes it different to the rest?
We don’t want to be preachy. Nobody wants to be told to change their behaviour, or that they should be thinking more about the bigger picture. It’s a turn off. We just want to show our readers some different perspectives and give them the support they need if they do decide to take action.
Who makes Weapons of Reason?
Weapons of Reason is designed and published by Human After All, edited by me, and illustrated and written by a growing body of international contributors — journalists, academics, philosophers, photographers, and teachers.’ (Interview with editor James Cartwright on the website of Stack)
