Chapter Five --
Conversation And Design --
In Chapter Five, Ranulph Glanville explores key themes within design and design teaching found within Pask¿s Conversation Theory (CT). This chapter demonstrates the parallels between central design activity and CT. The chapter describes major CT inspired machines (SAKI, Musicolor) and discussed key concepts within CT including interaction, learning, knowledge, and the modeling facility. The thrust of this chapter is about connecting design activity to conversation in terms of how design is taught and in terms of the act of designing itself. Glanville positions conversation and conversation theory as central to the process of design. --
