Chalari, Athanasia (2009) Approaches to the individual: the relationship between internal and external conversation. Palgrave Macmillan, London. ISBN 9780230231337
This book explores the process that relates two vivid parts of the individual's everyday life: the dialogues we have with ourselves and the dialogues we have with others. Both these kinds of conversation are conducted by all normal individuals in different ways, but the way that they are related remains relatively unexplored. Athanasia Chalari argues that there is a specific process that takes place between internal and external conversation which consists of various stages and is responsible for what the individual says and what they keep unspoken: this process is called 'mediation'. The book demonstrates that mediation is the deliberative process that enables the individual to achieve a subjectively-defined degree of 'inner balance' between their inner and external world which is satisfactory to them.
