Disposition: For Our Better Living
At the Daikanyama Suteki Salon, this is the first time a lecturer was invited from outside, not just from outside of the Suteki Research Institute members, but also from outside of the urban development field. Ms. Tami Yanagiwasa, researcher in philosophy and lecturer at Nanzan University, made a presentation on “disposition,” based on her recently edited book “Disposition View of the World” (see the References). The following is a summary of her presentation.
Disposition literally means placing or arrangement, and also implies tendency, inclination, power, temper or character that results from a particular arrangement. The world is nothing but disposition in this sense, and human beings are constantly disposed (regulated) by the disposition surrounding themselves, where internal power, temper, tendency, etc. are being organized and reorganized into various disciplines such as politics, ethics, economics, technology and arts through actions in human life. Disposition is this kind of “bottom-up” view of the world, whereas composition is a “top-down” view that we often take by imposing our own values or norms in grasping the real world.
By subscribing to the disposition view, we would accept the real world as a continuum of possibilities of disposition evolving from certain initial conditions, not as a snapshot with no history or background. We should also seek a kind of reorganization or repositioning that could expand possibilities without ignoring existing possibilities of disposition, leading to a “better” way of living (“Faret Tachikawa” is one of those examples, for which see the Reference). The disposition view will help us redefine our values to seek the possibility of a better life based on numerous facts and concepts that fit the real world, according to Ms. Yanagisawa.
It seems that this disposition approach might well provide a methodological ground for creation of new communities to develop desirable cities like Daikanyama, as Prof. Noro suggested at the previous Suteki Salon meeting (see:
In the free discussion session, a number of important questions were raised such as “does our view on Daikanyama as a ‘good’ place result from the disposition approach or the composition approach?” and “is the disposition view enough to provide an effective framework or mechanism for community redevelopment, especially in the aftermath of some natural disaster like an earthquake?” A heated discussion continued for a couple of hours, close to midnight.
