Lange denken im Dialog

„When we are capable of self-awareness, it’s usually for a very brief period of time: the ‚window of consciousness‘, during which we hold a thought or work out a problem, tends to be open on average for roughly seven seconds. What neuroscientists (and it mus be said, most contemporary philosophers) almost never notice, however, is that the great exception to this is when we are talking to someone else. In conversation, we can hold thoughts and reflect on problems sometimes for hours on end. […] Human thought is inherently dialogic.“
