Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In recent years, the study of meaningful coincidences has been widely debated and researched in a range of disciplines, such as literature, statistics, counselling, therapy, and transpersonal psychology. The psychologist Carl Gustav Jung coined the term synchronicity for coincidences and arguably is the founding father of the scientific investigation of the phenomenon, giving it a mystical trajectory (Jung & Pauli 1952, translated into English, 1955). It stands for the occurrence of two unlikely events falling together, connected through meaning, not causality.
When questioned, the majority of people attribute meaningful coincidences to psi, intuition alongside chance (Coleman et al. 2009). In a paranormal framework, coincidences can be considered spontaneous psychic phenomena (Grattan-Guinness 1983). This is contrary to psychological explanations that revolve around coincidences being be due to fallacies, misunderstanding of chance (Griffiths & Tenenbaum 2007), and other psychological processes (Pletcher 1982). Thus, this latter perspective focuses on the ways in which coincidences are produced by human error.
However, coincidences rely on being spoken about to be ‘out there’ in the world, their existence rests on being told. Coincidences are sculpted, fashioned and cultivated in talk. Thus, moving away from a perspective seeing coincidence as a phenomenon to explain (away), this study seeks to explore the ways in which people construct experiences of coincidences in their everyday lives.
Drawing on the Cambridge Coincidence Collection with more than 8000 coincidence accounts, as well as interviews and other textual and verbal data derived from he Internet, this talk will show hoe cognition is ‘done’ in discourse. This will be exemplified in the device ‘What a coincidence I thought. But it was no coincidence’ – a coincidence identifier followed by a reported thought. Focusing on the ways in which coincidences are talked and written about in everyday life, this talk will present analyses of data showing that coincidences are constructed as ‘ordinary’ in the backdrop of extraordinary events. Thus, the analysis of this discursive construction addresses firstly, the myth of coincidences as extraordinary events, and secondly, the myth of cognition as an inner process.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study develops a sociological approach to the study of coincidence. It uses real-life, textual accounts of coincidences sourced from the Cambridge Coincidence Collection to examine the ways in which events are constructed as coincidences and as non-coincidences in discourse. This is a direct departure from previous research in the field of coincidence studies, which has predominantly focused on ontological questions of coincidence. The aim of this study was to identify rhetorical devices people use in coincidence accounts. It draws on a broadly discourse analytical approach, examining the ways in which cognition, reality and identity are constructed in accounts of coincidence. An initial single case study identified possible rhetorical patterns, which were then identified, dismissed or fine-tuned in light of the data set. Four rhetorical devices have been identified in the analysis: 'mirror formulations', which narratively bind together the two story-segments that constitute coincidence; the 'discovery/departure' device, which manages stake and intentionality of the narrators; the 'but...still' device, which is a type of show concession through which narrators display an orientation to probabilistic reasoning; and coincidence disconfirmation, which discursively turns private matters public. The main finding of this thesis is that all rhetorical devices of coincidence construction identified in the CCC orient to an idealist notion of natural sciences, thus simultaneously adhering to – and perpetuating – its ideological influence. Thus, whilst often classed as ‘paranormal’ experiences, peoples’ coincidence accounts work hard at justifying their own existence in terms of mainstream scientific standards. This thesis provides an original contribution to knowledge by unpicking the consequential question of how a set of events is discursively constructed as a coincidence or the responsibility of agentic action.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper describes a phenomenon in everyday interpersonal interaction in which one participant displays an awareness of another’s subjectivity via unusual turn design: a word selection error or a phrase that is conspicuously ill-fitted to the interactional moment for which it was produced. This phenomenon, called poetic confluence, has enigmatic properties, in that these oddities seem to exhibit one person’s apparent awareness of a co-participant’s interior subjectivity. The phenomenon is traced historically, via work in psychoanalysis and studies of conversational interaction. Three examples from the author’s corpus of instances are examined to identify the transactional dynamics that may be mediated in poetic confluence. The paper concludes by arguing that studies of the relationship between subjectivity and social action may be usefully informed by observations from research on everyday social interaction.

Poetic features of an ostensibly telepathic experience
Publication year: 2017

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this paper I examine on going research on form of interpersonal relationality that takes the form of a speech event in which one participant produces a spoken turn that exhibits a poetic relationship to a co-participant's unspoken thoughts or unarticulated mental imagery. I trace how this phenomenon was first reported by the Hungarian psychoanalyst, István Hollós, published in 1933, and then independently noted in a paper by Emanuel Schegloff in 2003. The data consist of retrospective reports of experiences, rather than recordings and transcripts of naturally occurring data. This reliance on retrospective reports is unavoidable given the nature of the phenomenon, and I will offer some remarks on strategies to overcome the problems of analysing reports of interactions rather than interactions themselves. The analysis draws primarily on my corpus of instances (though reference is made to cases from the papers by Hollós and Schegloff to establish the robustness of the phenomenon), and shows how poetic turns formulate modulated versions of others’ sensitive or delicate thoughts or imagery, thereby performing a form of Goffmanesque remedial work.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this article we develop an approach to coincidences as discursive activities. To illustrate the range of empirical questions that can be explored in the analysis of coincidence accounts, we examine one single written account, which was submitted to a website of a research project to investigate the statistical dimensions of coincidence experiences. Our analysis is broadly ethnomethodological in that we examine this single case to identify how structural and narrative components work to constitute the recognizably coincidental quality of the events so described. The analysis identifies a mirror structure that resembles chiasmus, a figurative device found in classical texts. The analysis also describes how the account is designed to address inferential matters related to the site to which it was submitted. In the discussion we reflect on the implications of this approach for other approaches to coincidence.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This article is an exploratory empirical study of a form of interpersonal relationality that takes the form of a speech event in which one participant produces a spoken turn that exhibits a poetic relationship to a co-participant's unspoken thoughts or unarticulated mental imagery. The data consist of anecdotal reports, which are analysed in relation to empirical findings from conversation analytic studies of formulations in institutional and naturally occurring talk. The first part of the article establishes its robustness and describes some recurrent properties. The analysis shows how poetic turns formulate modulated versions of others' sensitive or delicate thoughts or imagery, thereby performing a form of Goffmanesque remedial work. In the discussion, methodological and substantive implications of this phenomenon are discussed, specifically: the use of anecdotes in sociological research, the porousness of personal boundaries, and theoretical accounts of relationality.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper examines a form of interpersonal relationality that takes the form of a speech event in which one participant produces a spoken turn that exhibits a poetic relationship to a co-participant's unspoken thoughts or unarticulated mental imagery. This examined in relation to an earlier analysis of a speech error during therapy which appeared to reflect some form of telepathic communication between patient and analyst. Drawing from sociological studies of the organization of everyday social interaction, I sketch some ways in which a sociological approach can contribute to psychoanalytic reflections on telepathic experiences between patient and analysts.
