Discussion with Cinzia, Ewelina and Michael (Ewelina's friend from Denmark) at Pizza Express following Kuba's presentation on Archeologies of the Public: We had heated discussion around Buddhist meditation, as (perhaps amazingly) there were at least four Buddhists at dinner that evening. And I expressed my sense we can't build a political project on positive thinking - which was being talked around in terms of "thinking as being" (thoughts as material - as the backbone of meditative practice). Nevertheless, there was general agreement that the daily practice of meditation affords one way of engaging with the world. And so this has made me wonder: Can dialogism be understood as a daily practice comparable to meditation and if so, what would that mean? If we're already always in dialogue, what would it mean to understand dialogism as a daily practice? Perhaps this relates back to attention: taking time everyday to make conscious how we dialogue with others and the world?
