coinspiration and cooperation


no typology is complete

There are as many types of conversations as recurrent ways of flowing in the interbraiding of emotioning and languaging that occur in different aspects of daily life; because of that, our different ways of being human beings, in individual solitude or in coexistence, configure themselves as different types of conversations according to the emotions involved, the coordinated actions, and the operational domains of the praxis of living in which these conversations occur. At the same time, due to the multidimensionality of the human relational world in language, different operational domains that are configured in the recursion of consensual coordinations of behavior give origin to emotional domains that do not exist otherwise. Therefore, emotions like shame, disgust, ambition and others are proper to the operation in the relational space that appear in language because they occur as denial or desire within the domains constituted in reflection about our own activity or about the activity of others. Conversations, therefore, involve a consensual emotioning interbraided with languaging in which there are kinds of emotions not present in the mammal emotioning outside the recursion of the consensual coordinations of behavior in languaging.
