Differentiating Exchange (Sennett , Together)
Edges are fraught zones in natural geographies because they shift constantly… In human ecology, the eight-lane highway isolating parts of the city from each other is a boundary, whereas a street at the edge between two communities can be more of a border. A more personal kind of border condition arises when, for instance, in a city two strangers meet in a bar, talk casually and come away from the encounter with a sharper personal understanding of their own interests, their own desires, their own values… The differentiating exchange is the province of dialogics. (p.79)

Dialogics is a modern name for a very old narrative practice.
