Meaning, Discourse, Text and Translation. An Overview and Recapitulation of Linguistic Concepts

Paulina Marta Kłos-Czerwińska

Abstrakt


Abstract

 

An article deals with the problematic of language and its main notions as meaning, discourse, text and translation. It is assumed as the recapitulation of these main notions and is directed to present these terms as necessary for the understanding of modern branches of linguistics and philosophy, such as f.ex. transhumanism. The problem of language is here treated as an integral part of the discussion on conscious being and as precondition of an understanding of its character. The author finds, in contrast to some modern currents in linguistics, that the problematic of language still constitutes the irreplaceable element of the consideration on the character of the subject and its relation with the outside world.

 

Keywords: language, meaning, discourse, text, translation.

 

Streszczenie

 

Artykuł dotyczy problematyki języka i jego głównych pojęć, takich jak: znaczenie, dyskurs, tekst i tłumaczenie. Jest on pomyślany jako rekapitulacja tych pojęć i jest nakierowany na przedstawienie ich jako koniecznych dla zrozumienia współczesnych dziedzin językoznawstwa i filozofii, takich jak np. transhumanizm. Problem języka jest tu potraktowany jako integralna część dyskusji na temat świadomego podmiotu i jako warunek wstępny zrozumienia jego charakteru. Autor uważa, że problematyka języka stanowi niezastąpiony element namysłu nad charakterem podmiotu i jego relacji do zewnętrznego świata.
