Bennet Bergmann gives a working paper on ‚Meditation as a practice to develop a mediopassive attitude towards self and world‘

This paper examines the aspect of medio-passivity (both active and passive) in the field of meditation practices. First, the mediopassive attitude is described and contextualized in relation to resonance theory. The illustration in the empirical material is divided into two topics: the practitioners attitude towards their own practice, and the description of their practice (the instruction how to meditate). Finally the underlying principle of medio-passivity is generalized and related to other oppositions (such as interior-exterior). This leads to the assumption that mediation practices could be described as an exercise in taking a medio-attitude.
