STRETCHING THE CONCEPT OF BOUNDARY IN BOUNDARY CRITIQUE

Jorge Ivan Velez-Castiblanco

Abstract


The way in which boundary is marked around an issue, determines the way in which we understand, approach and intervene in such an issue.  Stretching the way in which we understand the concept of boundary can expand our understanding of how to approach interventions in themselves.  This paper proposes to contribute to understanding of boundary in Boundary Critique in two ways.  First, by showing that those bounds can be understood as flexible and changing with every interaction of the actors.  Second by showing that what is left outside of the limit defines the meaning of what is inside.  The arguments draw from philosophy and pragmatics of language.
