Hall review The Silent Language Ticolare e utilizzando estensivamente la linguistica acuista notorietà soprattutto per le sue ricerche e le sue pubblicazioni concernenti la ‘comunicazione interculturale’ e la ‘prossemica’ che preferisce rivolgere non tanto agli addetti ai lavori uanto al più vasto pubblico Responsabile dei programmi di formazione nel Foreign Service Institute agli inizi degli anni Cinuanta introduce i diplomatici alle culture straniere con una metodologia che media tra esempi concreti e generalizzazioni strutturali Ne emerge un’antropologia insieme viva e classica che ritroviamo poi in tutte le sue opereDelle opere di H si rico. Hall s Silent Language reveals how one s culture produces unconscious behaviors that allow others to read messages that are being sent unknowingly the Silent Language The 1959 book was meant for lay readers and for professionals in the fields of anthropology and linguistics It got a bit dense for this lay reader but I am glad to have read the book In many cases Hall offers examples of real world situations that clarify difficult passages in the textWe may have heard of professional poker players who are able to read tells from the behavior or reactions of other players that provide an advantage to the pro While Hall does not speak of poker players his examples make the same point His overall theme is that culture is communication Hence a careful observer especially from another culture can derive meaning from behavior he or she seesThe first five chapters are clearly informative for most readers It is when he develops the linguistic basis of his culture is communication theory over three chapters that the going gets tough There he talks of informal formal and technical levels of tradition with language sets isolates and patterns It grows increasingly granular Fortunately chapters nine and ten deal respectively with the cultural behavior aspects of time and space Even fortunately Hall has written separate books on these two subjects The Dance of Life The Other Dimension of Time 1982 and The Hidden Dimension 1966 I have read both and would recommend them for general readers who would like to explore these two aspects a lengthHall closes Silent Language with several technical appendices These will probably not have greatappeal to general readers but they are brief Overall the writing is comprehensible with flashes of humor and as mentioned above interesting real life examples of the Silent Language being spoken

The cover of the book has a uote The Silent Language shows how cultural factors influence the individual behind his back without his knowledgewell it doesn tThis book is about establishing a template for anthropologists to use when they study different cultures this template can be followed to identify and define the different components of that culture It s uite an ambitious goal but as we know today he failed the way different cultures developed and converged from the 50 s until today changed most of what this book has to say therefore most of what you would read here is really rendered obsolete today and I do not know of any other anthropologists that used this template this book tries to buildNo surprise there while reading this book you get the feeling that the author desperately tries to impose structure to the inherently unstructured entity that culture is it gets way too technical and defines too many terms building a very complicated and superimposed structure on what culture is Back to the uote on the cover of this book I was deceived to think that this book will shed some light on how culture influences our behavior the book does not do this it only outlines an overly complicated procedure that other anthropologists should use to show how cultures influence the individual behaviorAnother important uote from the Introduction of this book The non American reader as well as members of many American sub cultures should remember that this book was written primarily as a message to the author s own group one would hope that similar volumes will eventually be written by the Spanish groups the Native Americans and the ethnic blacksyes that s right this is a racist book by target audience and the author makes no effort to hide it you would also encounter many cultural stereotypes that the author generalizes on whole groups of countries he d often say the middle eastern do this and the Latin americans do that while most of his generalizations are probably just personal stories the author have heard somewhere So this book is riddled with racism and stereotypes I didn t mind that it was a different time in the 50s but this should be notedOn the plus side the author often uses stories from his vast experience as anecdotes while those stories might not be very relevant they are uite fun and enjoyable
