In this course we will work on one of the distinctive features of Japanese communication, the use of aimai or ambiguity of communication.
We will look at the origins of this communicative style, its relationship with other features of Japanese culture. We also will study the effects of ambiguity when establishing contact with people from other cultural backgrounds, and how this characteristic is viewed by Japanese people.
Finally, we will discuss how ambiguity can help us to understand the machine “consciusness” and its differences with the human consciousness.
