Night School: The Voices in Your Head

Date Published:

Description:  “Life by its very nature is dialogic. To live means to participate in dialogue: to ask questions, to heed, to respond, to agree, and so forth. In this dialogue a person participates wholly and throughout his whole life: with his eyes, lips, hands, soul, spirit, with his whole body and deeds. He invests his entire self in discourse, and this discourse enters into the dialogic fabric of human life, into the world symposium,” writes Russian literary scholar Mikhail Bakhtin. We explore how the notion of “heteroglossia” which he termed can help us understand the world.
