Chapter 11—Relational Dialectics

  1. Figure 11-2 displays every discourse as connected to every other discourse. Explain why the figure appears this way. How would the theory be different if it claimed that each discourse is connected only to its opposite?
     
  2. Describe a time that you experienced an aesthetic moment. How did dialogue bring this moment about? Was the sense of unity fleeting, as Baxter predicts, or not?
     
  3. Baxter states that relationships are in constant flux and that change is all that is predictable. If this is true, what is the benefit of analyzing relationships as relational dialectics scholars do? In other words, what goal do you think the theory aims to achieve?
     
  4. Look at a recent text messaging conversation on your cell phone. How did the utterance chain play out? Which utterances are proximal or distant? What previously spoken discourses are referenced, and what not-yet-spoken discourses are on the horizon?
     
  5. Think of a recent relational conflict you have had with someone close to you. What discourses constituted that conflict? Pages 137-140 describe several ways that discourses can struggle. In your conflict, in what ways did these discourses struggle? What this pattern of struggle satisfying to you or not?
