Framing the Problem

Abstract

In this chapter Ippolito introduces the conflict crisis: the inability to effectively negotiate and problem-solve in a twenty-first-century environment. Rooted in dominant culture war and game metaphors that encourage adversarial competition and define success on the basis of “winning”, Ippolito advocates for a cooperative approach to negotiation in order to achieve subjectively and contextually defined optimal outcomes. Such a paradigm shift requires a new metaphoric frame and a new pedagogical approach to negotiation and dispute resolution. To respond to the conflict crisis, Ippolito puts forward the musical ensemble as the new metaphor and model and an arts-based teaching and learning method to explore the effects of this new paradigm.
