Friday Morning Seminar - February 19 with Chikako Ozawa-de Silva - Shared screen with speaker view

I -as a non-native- am seeing lon-ging as opposed to lon-eliness in this specific Japanese account. These 2 words in English cultural linguistics share on multiple levels: philology, toxicology, and hermeneutics. In both experiential constructs, loss is involved. Do these two constructs share as much in Japanese linguistics? How would you define the difference between the constructs from a Japanese perspective? Thank you.

Thank you for these profound reflections , sorry I must leave for clinical meeting
Byron Good
01:05:09
Thanks, Jaswant!

**lexicology NOT toxicology, in my previous comment. Sorry, in and out of procedures today.
Arlene Katz
01:12:56
I would add that relational process is crucial n empathy, research; dare we add humility?
Virginia Moreira
01:14:46
I love your idea of critical empathy because of course no one is capable to fully be empathic to someone else!
IMAN ROUSHDY
01:15:12
Also, it seems that communal loneliness in the Japanese sense is part and parcel of communal memory.
Virginia Moreira
01:17:04
But don’t you think that when you say that loneliness is a problem of society and not of the individual you loose part of the the problem? How about thinking it in the intersection of individual and society ? Just sharing some thoughts. Thank you for this wonderful presentation!
Akile Gürsoy

Thank you for a very stimulating talk. Loneliness and suicide are so central to well-being. It would be great if there can in the future be comparative research in other cultures and contexts. In Turkish there is the idiom "Loneliness is only for God" (Yalnızlık Allaha mahsustur).

It seems suicide stigma in Japan is different from other culture.Would you like to talk more about that,chikako.Thanks a lot.
Akile Gürsoy
01:30:18
Unfortunately I have to leave now. Thank you again for a very thought provoking presentation. Very timely...
Janis Jenkins
01:32:18
I can make a comment
eric
01:32:48
Very beautiful and thoughtful presentation thanks! How does your thinking about this relate to earlier writing about society and loneliness, Also to Durkheimn’s writing about anomie?
Seinenu Thein-Lemelson
01:49:47
The title of your book is a nod to Takeo Doi’s work “The Anatomy of Dependence.” Can you say a little bit more about the cultural context of loneliness in Japan in terms of socio-emotional socialization of children and the mother-child or caregiver-child relationship? And also the interplay between this and the neoliberal social and material environment? I ask because when I worked on Burmese childhood for my dissertation, I drew heavily upon Takeo Doi and the Japanese literature there were so many similarities.
eric
01:51:39
How does your ethnography relate to to longer standing Japanese social performance of loneliness as an idiom of distress?
Michele Nathan
01:52:24
Wonderful talk. So illuminating. Looking forward to reading your book
Don Seeman PhD
01:52:37
So nice seeing you all, like old times. I have a faculty meeting n a few minutes.mWonderful work Chicako.
Lance Laird, BU

@Iman, your comment on lon-eliness and lon-ging remind me of the connections Lisa Stevenson makes between the two in her work on suicide in the Arctic.
Antonio Bullon
01:56:59
"Empathy is an act of imagination". Certainly it is. In clinical practice, in order to explore the patient's innerworld, the clinician needs to have an attitude (awareness) approach imagine the multiple worlds that patient may be living in,

I am so sorry I have to leave now. Looking forward to reading your book Chicako! Thank you all!

I think place, not space…because the first has belongs
Michael M. J. Fischer

Yalnızlık Allaha mahsustur (loneliness is only for God) — introduces another component — what is the role of Buddhist philosophical attitudes to the world in Japanese responses to 3/11?
Antonio Bullon
02:01:45
Thank you Chikako for your wonderful talk and looking forward to read your book. Very interested in the way you expand on critical empathy. It could be very helpful in ethnographic exploration but I also see applications in medical and mental health clinical practice.
Lissie Wahl
02:03:36
I absolutely agree with Antonio and all else who have congratulated Chikako - it changes how we will continue to focus on a topic that has been very elusive. Brilliant.
Lance Laird, BU
02:04:36
Thank you, Chikako. I look forward to reading your book. Great discussion.
christophe Millien
02:05:13
Thanks so much Chikako for this wonderful piece of work which shows the beauty of the ethnography
Byron Good
02:05:47
Just to put a couple of things on the table: 1) Alasdair taught me, in interviewing courses, to be extremely careful about ‘empathy’ — to assume we really do understand what someone is saying. He talks about forcing ourselves to listen with an awareness that we really have no idea what the other is saying. This pushes on to the question of whether “loneliness” is a singular concept…
Byron Good
02:07:29
Second, to follow on Seinenu’s chat, on Takeo Doi’s book The Anatomy of Dependence — how ‘dependency’ in personhood shapes ‘loneliness’.
Sa'ed Atshan
02:08:20
Need to run to a meeting. Thank you, Chikako, Mary-Jo, Sadeq, and all.
Arlene Katz
02:09:28
Amen Byron. creating the space to notice, rather than assume we ‘know’ what the other is experiencing… humility is here, also your notion of the subjunctive… thanks
christophe Millien
02:11:38
Thanks Byron, Mary-jo and Sadeq for this wonderful seminar today
Lesley Sharp
02:11:44
I find Lori Gruen’s notion of “entangled empathy” (in interspecies contexts) especially helpful because it begins with the premise that we can never fully understand the other (be they human or animal) but that empathy is, nevertheless, an important project/commitment
