Listening and Questioning: The "Apophatic/Cataphatic" Distinction Revisited
Waks, Leonard
Learning Inquiry, v1 n2 p153-161 Aug 2007
In an earlier article I drew a distinction between two general types of listening. In one the listener brings pre-determined categories to bear in extracting useful information from the speaker's utterance. In the other the listener suspends such categories to hear as much as possible in the utterance. This distinction has been challenged by Sophie Haroutunian-Gordon. This article responds to her critique.
