We contest two claims: (1) that language, understood as the processing ofabstract symbolic forms, is an instrument of cognition and rational thought,and (2) that conventional notions of turn-taking, exchange structure, and moveanalysis, are satisfactory as a basis for theorizing communication between living,feeling agents. We offer an enkinaesthetic theory describing the reciprocalaffective neuro-muscular dynamical flows and tensions of co-agential dialogicalsense-making relations. This “enkinaesthetic dialogue” is characterized bya preconceptual experientially recursive temporal dynamics forming the deepextended melodies of relationships in time. An understanding of how thoserelationships work, when we understand and are ourselves understood, whencommunication falters and conflict arises, will depend on a grasp of our enkinaestheticintersubjectivity.
