입장의 결핍과 논문의 과잉 : 논문 쓰기의 문제
Lack and Abundance in Korea: So Few Positions, So Much Writing
Korea is an absence of writers' position in relation to their discourse. This paper argues that such an absence contributes to the economy of discursive production, resulting in a quantitative explosion of academic papers at the expense of their quality. Such a tendency is accelerated by the absence of readers. As Derrida among many others has asserted, writing in itself is essentially discursive, running wild with no transcendental signified fixing their meandering. Only when the signifier is geared to (the community of) readers, it is anchored to its signified: meaning is social. It follows that scholarly writings in the absence of their readers can be asocial and anarchical, endlessly reproducing themselves in total freedom without constraint. The readers force the writer to take a specific position in regard to his discourse, thus limiting his discursive freedom and his wayward movements. Only then writing becomes his writing, and is given into a system of two-way communication where every argument is expected to find its opponent and defend its position. Such a process of a writer defending his position makes his discourse more systematic and more theoretically conscious, eventually contributing to the maturity of Korean scholars.
