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