They may be approached as relationships to enter rather than simply as methods.
We focus on the thinking of four people in particular: I want to begin by approaching conversation as a way of coming to an understanding (sometimes called a dialogic structure of understanding).
This particular way of approaching matters is linked to the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer.He describes conversation thus: [It] is a process of two people understanding each other.Thus it is a characteristic of every true conversation that each opens himself to the other person, truly accepts his point of view as worthy of consideration and gets inside the other to such an extent that he understands not a particular individual, but what he says.The thing that has to be grasped is the objective rightness or otherwise of his opinion, so that they can agree with each other on a subject.(Gadamer 1979: 347) In conversation, knowledge is not a fixed thing or commodity to be grasped. The metaphor that Gadamer uses is that of the horizon.It is not something ‘out there’ waiting to be discovered. He argues that we each bring prejudices (or pre-judgments) to encounters.
