Sample text

Although Bakhtin did not say much about cultural groups, they can easily become incorporated in a dialogical view of the self. Both the cultural groups to which one belongs and those to which one is emotionally opposed can be part of an extended, multi-voiced, tension-laden dialogical self. In order to clarify this, two kinds of addressees should be distinguished – visible and invisible ones. One can talk to a visible party with an invisible party as the object of speech. However, as part of the conversation, the invisible party can be addressed in an indirect way.

As these examples suggest, societal institutions entail social positions that deeply influence or even inhibit the dialogical process in structural ways. When one of the parties is not allowed to play a role as an active and reciprocal contributor of the interchange, dialogue is reduced to monologue because one voice is in control of the situation at the expense of the active contribution of the other to a commonly produced result. Social dominance and hierarchical organization of self Monological processes can be observed when localizing forces reduce the multiplicity of voices of globalization in protective or defensive ways, as can be seen in the case of fundamentalist movements or orthodox religions.

As we show in the next section, this uncertainty challenges our potential for innovation and creativity to the utmost, and at the same time, it entails the risks of a defensive and monological closure of the self and the unjustified dominance of some voices over others. A multi-voiced and dialogical self Three reasons for a dialogical approach Our central thesis is that global–local connections require a dialogical conception of self and identity for several reasons. Three reasons, in particular, warrant such a conception: the increasing multiplicity of self and identity, the need for developing a dialogical capacity, and the necessity of acknowledging the alterity of the other person with whom one enters in dialogical contact.
