Sample text

In answering this question it will be helpful to remember that dialogue is not, as is sometimes thought, a dyadic, much less a binary, phenomenon. Dialogue is a manifold phenomenon, but for schematic purposes it can be reduced to a minimum of three elements having a structure very much like the triadic construction of the linguistic sign: a dialogue is composed of an utterance, a reply, and a relation between the two. It is the relation that is most important of the three, for without it the other two would have no meaning.

It is, not surprisingly, a dialogic relation, and before going any further it will be useful to consider what that means. Bakhtin is not the first, and far from the only, thinker to ponder the potential importance of dialogue in human interaction.

Being is a simultaneity; it is always co-being. ”3Like Bakhtin—and in marked contrast to the French reading of the asymmetry of the sign that finds its most radical extreme in Derrida’s differance—Karcevskij recognized that “opposition pure and simple necessarily leads to chaos and cannot serve as the basis of a system.
