The textual pendulum

نتاج البحث: نشر في مجلةمقالةمراجعة النظراء


A comparison of the dominating perceptions of the relationship between text and knowledge in the Middle Ages, the modern era, and the postmodern era reveals a fundamental shift of attitude. This article describes this shift metaphorically as a pendulum: From intra/ intertextual study in the Middle Ages (when texts contained divine truth within themselves and in relation to other texts), to an extratextual methodology in the modern era (in which texts reflected objective reality), and back to postmodernist intra/intertextualism (in which texts do not reflect a doubtful objective reality but instead cloaked social constructions). The author posits that surprising similarities exist between the intra/intertextual cultures of the Middle Ages and the postmodern era and offers some explanations for these similarities.
