The listener’s Job…

May 16, 2011

“The listener’s job is to listen and respond to a perspective and a pattern within the context of its larger narrative.”  [Ref: ??? No idea who said this… perhaps Mike Hanne in one of our conversations…?]

… but the idea here connects to:

“…the fundamental function of narrative in human life is not to report a chronological sequence of events, but to signal a perspective and create a satisfying pattern of themes one has drawn from one’s various societal traditions.” (p20 Memory and Myth – Gee – again, ref needs fixing… later!)
