Living Order. The article opens with a student teacher and female student who fail to appreciate each other as unique and living beings, or unique existents. Starting from the premise that such failure is a common aspect of the everyday order of life, I reread the encounter through the work of Moira von Wright, Kelly Oliver, Gert Biesta and Adriana Cavarero, asking three questions. What is the interpersonal cost of a relationship which fails to recognize lived human uniqueness? Does it make a difference for the politics of schooling whether interpersonal relationships exclude or leave space for those involved in them to appreciate each other as unique, living beings? What difficulties and opportunities exist for the possibility of appearing and appreciating oneself and others as unique existents within a student-teacher relation that is experienced as specific, embodied and altruistic? I argue that attending sensually to the other can open and safeguard a relational space for the appearance of uniqueness.
