[en] Text analysis ; scaling-sensitivity ; social development
[en] In this presentation we retrace a process of ongoing ‘invention’ and ‘convention’ of a scaling-sensible text analysis. With conceiving of a relational world, the distinction of ‘subject’ and ‘object of analysis’ dissolves. Thus, the audience is invited to take a journey through various fractal cutouts of our relational world, in some way or another related to a pilot study of scaling-sensible text analysis. These cutouts are disclosed through three fractal narratives, each one taken on with a different fractal size. Thereby, we approach questions such as:
What do persons do when writing scientific texts? How do they relate to entities they cut as ‘ontologically being’?
How can we methodologically go about scientific texts, if we conceive of them as inventions, respectively as bearing ever singular ‘ontologies’?
How can we develop a scaling-sensible attitude in the analysis of texts as well as in scientific writing?
Eventually, we do not intend to give any definite conclusions or the like. Rather, we seek to suggest new pathways of analysis and to offer the audience various scales to think with.
