I was going to just skip past this article, but then the question occurred to me, what if we were to prohibit all classification schemes and taxonomies from writing on education? These abound, but they don't actually provide any information. These 8 characteristics are a case in point. What have we learned when we are told there's a thing called "innovator's mindset" that includes 'reflective', 'resilient', 'creators', etc? What is is about these things that leads us to group them together, why these things and not some other things (like, say, 'energetic' or 'curious')? What is their causal efficacy - what creates them, and what do they create in turn? What is their role in explanation (beyond, say, 'problem solvers solve problems')? And - to get back to my original question - what would the same author say if they weren't allowed to use taxonomies and classifications to make their point?
