    Locked Within the Library: Musings on Metanarratives, Weltanschauungs and Library Research

    Export to Mendeley

    The main idea underlying this article is that of the interdependence between the essential notions of the central metanarratives of logocentric cultures and the inventory of concepts available as keywords for academic research. In other words, the argument of this chapter is designed to draw the attention of the reader to the fact of the interdependency obtaining between the language used to describe the world and the existence or inconceivability of existence of entities inhabiting it. The starting point for the musings collected here is Ludwig Wittgenstein's famous adage, which provided the elegant motto for this, by and large, higgledy-piggledy collection of observations. Departing from there, the argument develops into a deepened reflection concerning the limitations of the development of knowledge in a logo-centric world. The argument eventually leads to the question of the discourses which dictate the characteristics of everyday strategies of library and Internet research employed by students and scholars alike. The final part of the presentation is dedicated to the potential of figurative language in the context of the search for possible solutions to the menace of an intellectual vicious circle of recognized methodologies. First and foremost, however, the present musings provide a point of departure for further philosophical and philological debate on the state of knowledge and its development.

    Description

    Title : Locked Within the Library: Musings on Metanarratives, Weltanschauungs and Library Research
    Author(s) : Paweł Jędrzejko
    Abstract : The main idea underlying this article is that of the interdependence between the essential notions of the central metanarratives of logocentric cultures and the inventory of concepts available as keywords for academic research. In other words, the argument of this chapter is designed to draw the attention of the reader to the fact of the interdependency obtaining between the language used to describe the world and the existence or inconceivability of existence of entities inhabiting it. The starting point for the musings collected here is Ludwig Wittgenstein's famous adage, which provided the elegant motto for this, by and large, higgledy-piggledy collection of observations. Departing from there, the argument develops into a deepened reflection concerning the limitations of the development of knowledge in a logo-centric world. The argument eventually leads to the question of the discourses which dictate the characteristics of everyday strategies of library and Internet research employed by students and scholars alike. The final part of the presentation is dedicated to the potential of figurative language in the context of the search for possible solutions to the menace of an intellectual vicious circle of recognized methodologies. First and foremost, however, the present musings provide a point of departure for further philosophical and philological debate on the state of knowledge and its development.
