Thank you, I’ll check out the anti-fragility link.
Interesting, I think your point about what i would place in the area of “scaffolding and downward assimilation”… How do we generalise out of mediated contexts? How do we create new structures away from developmentally supportive contexts?
And I like this notion of legal/dialectic being a fallback ‘relational logic’ it’s very recognisable… Especially bearing in mind cultural/history of relating (1st, 2nd, 3rd person wise) and if one partner is speaking a different ‘developmental code’…
My own personal interest in conflict resolution as a line of dev, lies specifically in a sense I have that people just don’t know how to manage a number of related polarities (sorry, a bit of a meshwork of terms here):
Literal … Figurative
Sincerity … Irony
Fact … Fiction
Playful … Serious
Details … Meta themes (contents or understanding ‘we space’ patterns arising)
Defense mechanisms … Witnessing all that arises with compassion
Hmmm… Lots to think about. I appreciate your engagement on this topic!
