[Xmca-l] Re: Ma (negative space) - Wikipedia

Your comment that
Here, we worked around phenomenological issues of room to maneuver. (spielraum: Play +space).
In the Western imaginary this has a spatial focus.
Maai (Japanese sensibility) adds the temporal and spielraum becoming ‘place-time’ as room to maneuver.
Your recent articles now exploring speech (fields) and (zones) of proximal development and existing with/out mediation.

It seems that there may be a continuity, a rhythmic flow or pulsing offering room to maneuver that is playing out.

On page 123 of your article discussing Maai you comment on spatial/ITY THROUGH knowing and mastering Maai:

Envisioning and enacting ‘spielraum’; giving rise to the very (spatiality) IN which maai operates.
The ‘intervals’ for any action -including- an interval to start, an interval to take actions course, an interval to end, and an interval to recover/recall.

16 years later you are re/thinking mediation and maneuvering with/out mediation, moving through speeching (fields).
Developing room to maneuver.

I appreciate your and Alfredo’s collaboration. Not sure if I have clearly  indicated my abiding interest in this theme that plays through maai, spielraum, mediation (as Latour accents). Playspaces. Play worlds.

Will return to reading the posted articles. I wanted to acknowledge the importance of your unfolding interests generating openings in which to maneuver.

Hi Larry, here a piece on Maii, including self-other relation, in the case
of karate-do, which we did as part of an inquiry that also included
teaching and teacher education. Domenico, at the time, was way into the
black belt categories and had done his MA on a phenomenology of karate and
his PhD on Piagetian themes of development, but here we worked also around
my phenomenological interests in room to maneuver (Spielraum) that I was
pursuing at the time  Michael
