The Journey into Ba: A Phenomenology of Computer Mediated Communication

In this paper, the author explores the concept of “ba” in computer-mediated communication (CMC) from a phenomenological perspective. The term “ba” is based on the concept of “basho no ronri” proposed by Nishida Kitaro, a Japanese philosopher. The author finds this concept intriguing and wants to delve deeper into it.

However, as the author reads further, they realize that their initial assumption about the topic may be different from what they expected. It seems that the paper is actually discussing knowledge acquisition and its relation to education and sociology.
