practising structure

by pasdelabas

My daughter E is doing something for the first time and showing me.  She explains that this is the way she usually does it.  She has no way of doing it though, she is just doing it.  I ask her if that is the case, does she have a way to do it or is she inventing one straight away.  Yes she is making it up.  Why?  She doesn’t know.

Structure, my child and others too seek to order the world immediately, to have objective standpoints with which to look at the world, a desire for representation.   What she has learned to do and what she is practising is structuring, that is what she is explaining to me.
