The Cultivation of attention in the light of the works of Iris Murdoch
Örebro universitet, Institutionen för humaniora, utbildnings- och samhällsvetenskap. (STING)
2012 (Engelska)Ingår i: Attending to silence: educators and philosophers on the art of listening / [ed] Heny Fiskå Hägg, Aslaug Kristiansen, Kristiansand: Portal forlag, 2012, 1, s. 41-53Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter I enquire into the notion of attention as part of the relationship between the individual and the surrounding world. I am especially interested in the cultivation of attention. Drawing on Iris Murdoch, I distinguish and discuss two different directions of attention: Firstly, I discuss an attention directed towards self. It is directed mainly towards egocentric wishes or personal narratives. It implies an enclosure into oneself, and it cultivates a relationship between self and world which is marked by self-centeredness. It may lessen the possibilities of new understandings. Secondly, I discuss attention as an aspect of heightened receptivity. I describe this as cultivating a relationship between the individual and her surroundings which is marked by a greater awareness of the limits of personal narratives. It can spur a curiosity towards all the new that could be explored in the world. I conclude the chapter by suggesting how this enquiry is of relevance to education: I argue that certain qualities of attention can hold a greater possibility of new understandings and I also suggest that such a cultivation benefits from places of stillness and silence.
