What we mean by Relational Implicit is the emergence of meaning in our interactions. We explore it as an embodied experience (somatic implicit), as a shared experience (shared implicit), and as the glue that binds societies together (collective implicit).
This exploration takes place within the context of a shift:
– from a model where people are seen as individual units, to the psychology of interaction;
– from a top-down, cognitive model to a bottom-up model where much is implicit as opposed to explicit.
Implicit means intangible. It does not mean ethereal. We are talking here about embodied experience.
