Hal cites the crucial work of Fernando Flores on this topic. If you are not familiar with Flores' work on the criticality of language, here is a good summary article.
Flores explained this more effectively with the distinction "disclosive space." In short, what we see is governed by three concurrent aspects of our being.
- We see what we can distinguish, hence the need to learn.
- We see what we are concerned for, hence the importance to be clear for oneself and in social groups what concerns/goals we pursue.
- And, we see in the midst of our everyday doing...the habitual way we engage in the world, hence we need to be deliberate to the point of choosing our habits to give us the opportunity to see.
I'll let you absorb this for a bit and discuss each of these three distinctions by themselves. It's a bit like eating fudge...very tasty but you can't really enjoy it in big bites.
