Plato's Cave and Aristotle's Collections: Dialogue across Disciplines
This paper describes a joint effort between the Department of Theatre and the School of Nursing at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. The purpose of this collaboration was to design and evaluate techniques commonly used in theatre programmes to help doctoral nursing students understand philosophical content. Various theatre workshop techniques were used in order to help them bring abstract ideas to physical life. In other words, these techniques and exercises help bridge theory and practice.
