Example text

Readers might find my attempts to support Lederach’s description by providing a series of explanatory diagrams useful in this regard. I believe that in this final chapter I have been able to develop a systematic foundational framework for the concept of the elicitive, which is required for its practical application. In the process, I explicitly address at every step the meaning of elicitive for the conflict workers, in terms of their collaboration and their relationship to their clients. The resulting insights, conclusions, and suggestions conclude this book while defining the focus of the third and last volume of this trilogy.

Due to the ‘thrownness’ of the world, as Heidegger would say, each individual and each society is permanently faced with the choice between risk or security, opening or preserving, structure or flexibility, order or chaos, tranquility or excitement, conservative or progressive tendencies, self-preservation or selfchange, self-assertion or self-surrender. Such dualities and their inherent tension will surface in this book in various forms. Decisive for transrational peace studies is the recognition that this tension is an inevitable part of existence; it cannot be avoided and must be borne.

In the corresponding chapter, I will focus on the work of Richard Dorin Shoulders, who seems an outstanding representative of such contributions. My chosen examples are certainly not comprehensive and will by necessity overlook a number of important methods. However, not even a very voluminous book could claim completeness in this field, and I believe that my selection is capable of illustrating which of the various methods can be applied within the framework of elicitive conflict work. There will be ample opportunity to refer to related or similar methods without discussing them in detail.
