Tekst, pisanie, szkoła w perspektywie antropologicznej
MetadataShow full item record
The paper is an attempt to reveal an anthropological structure of following categories: text and writing; the categories that nowadays require cultural, historical and institutional relativization. I maintain that the paradigm of writing as mental, individualistic creation and freely chosen way of life is a result of late modernity. Moreover, even today it is not the only paradigm and is not universally acceptable. The illustration of this that I develop in this text is an example of today’s exercise books. School - as the main institution of literate initiation, including mass first contact with literature — is an institution in which the practice of writing, regulated by school breaks and specific for capitalist society dual division of time, is a specific one, being a tool of well-defined, perceptual and social discipline. However, this discipline does not exclude creativity, as long as we leave its late-modern definition.
