Chapter 6 (Page no: 187)

The TOPOI area Order: views and logic.

This chapter focuses on the TOPOI area Order, which is the content level of communication and entails the exchange of the views and logic of the participants in an interaction. The chapter first explains how through punctuation, as a process of order, individual differences in view come about. Subsequently, it discusses a number of prevailing collective world views that (due to the circular character of communication) deeply influence individuals' views. In addition to their views, people's styles of thinking and reasoning are also influenced by dominant collective systems of thought. Two examples of this are discussed, namely, 'Western' and 'Eastern' thinking, before making a distinction between inductive and deductive thinking.
