Communication and community : implications of Martin Buber’s dialogue

Martin Buber’s paintings means that actual existence starts with individ­uals engaged in discussion, not only taking good care of one’s personal wishes as defined in social Darwinism.

Arnett argues that the tip of the age of abundance calls for that we quit the communica­tive recommendations of the previous and search to interact in the middle of restricted assets and an doubtful destiny. Today’s situa­tion demands an unwavering dedication to Buber’s “narrow ridge” quandary for either self and community.

Example text

Transcript 1/16/98) The literacy event began when June showed me the health care form and ended when the form was complete. The observable unit of analysis, the literacy event, involves interaction around the health care form where we are both consuming and producing information. There is more to this set of interactions than simply interactions with the written texts, though. In analyzing literacy events we learn more about social practices. This interaction involves social institutions, June's and my relationship, and our knowledge and proficiency with the language of the text.

Each domain in which they interact with literacy evokes different aspects of their literate subjectivites—an issue that comes into focus in this chapter. " I focus on June's commitment to education as she negotiated the layers of paperwork and discursive practices that came home from the school about the special education referral process. June's insistence that special education was a wrong decision for Vicky was clear. Torn between mothering and schooling, June automatically resisted the referral process (Luttrell, 1997).

However, in order to do this I need to make connections with the vignettes, examples, and composites that have come before and those that will follow. The second reason why coverage is important is because in order to build this textured narrative I need to keep one eye on June's present participation and the other eye on her sociohistorical participation with the school. Aside from coverage, there were other measures of credibility built into the research process. I built numerous "checks and balances" into my research process including member checking (Wolcott, 1990), an audit trail (Glesne & Peshkin, 1992), and triangulation (Mathison, 1988) or "convergence" (Gee, 1999).
