About Relational Philosophy

The concept of Relational Philosophy was coined by Dr. Sonja Radatz and is based on the radical ideas of constructivist thinking. It is based on the idea that the formulation of a positive future is not based on analysis of the past or present, but on the immediate realization of an outcome, the way one might move from one apartment to another. This philosophy shifts the focus onto us, claiming that it is our responsibility to create the future we want to live in.

In 2003 Dr. Sonja Radatz was awarded the German Prize for Social and Organizational Cybernetics for her life's work.
