Discursive Hypostatisations. Philosophic, Scientific, Literary, Artistic and Religious Discursivity





discourse, knowledge, representation, object


The realm of discursivity is in truth heteroclite, submitted to metamor-phoses that testify the various correspondences between the axis of being (the on) and that of the existent (gegonos) is testified. Discursivity “pre-sentifies” in a manifested manner a referent that at the same time is not able to determine its existence without associating itself with a situation of knowledge, implicitly with a form of rendering and representation. Be-ing articulated as a conceptual hypostatisation of reason (the philosophic discourse), or a form that creates significance (the artistic discourse), a textual and socio-historical device (the literary discourse),  as a closing up of the circle of interpretations (the scientific discourse) or as resignation in silence (the religious discourse), discourse itself emerges as a reflection of conscience about things, that is, it acts, produces, searches for affirmation, thus and ultimately crafting out a possible world.
