Consulting

Theoretical Consulting

Most consulting focuses on the provision and implementation of efficient solutions to practical problems.  Sometimes, however, the difficulty an organization faces is not practical, but theoretical–and therefore, the answer it needs is not a solution of praxis but clarity in understanding.  Continuum Philosophical Insight offers such clarity through three distinct functions.

Research

Theoretical research is not simply collecting, correlating, and analyzing data: rather, it requires navigating through the minefield of interpretation through which data is presented and sorting out the true from the false.  This skill requires not only years of development and training, but a capacity for discursive analysis and recursive synthesis: judging one approach against another, one idea among the many, discerning the truth in each, extracting it, and resolving all the truths together again into a coherent narrative.

Distillation

Subsequently, one must be able to communicate that narrative effectively.  Continuum does this through written reports, oral conversations, email communication, face-to-face meetings, and other various methods of dissemination, including videos, lectures, and so on.

Research and distillation are essential elements for gaining a deeper understanding of any theoretical difficulty.  Whether seeking better cultural, conceptual, ethical, interpretational, paradigmatic, or linguistic understanding of a difficulty, Continuum can provide these two crucial services.

Company Seminars

Finally, for in-depth installation of theoretical advancement, Continuum will give one-to-two week long seminars in person.  These include lectures, coordination of group sessions, individual sessions, open format discussions, and interactive panels which increase familiarity with the concepts under consideration.

Semiotic Analysis

Semiotic_Analysis

Signs permeate our experience, structure our interpretations, attune our minds, and constitute our culture.  More often than not, we are unaware of the full range of objects and ideas signified by our products, advertisements, images, audio, and services.  The insights of a semiotic analysis thereby help us not only to produce higher quality results, but to do so with a deepened understanding: of the results themselves, the nature of their effects, but also of the moral, cultural, and distinctively human consequences.

Through a semiotic analysis using propriety means–discerning the kinds of signs, the manner in which they are oriented and orient to objects, the possible effects had on those perceiving the signs, and the cultural variations altering interpretation–we bring meaning to clarity.
