Hur tre epistemologiska diskurser och hur synen på kunskapsorganisation inom dem manifesteras i text
Sammanfattning: Our purpose is to analyse three different epistemological discourses that exist in the social practice, Library and Information Science LIS, using the strategy for interpretation from the mimesis model by Paul Ricoeur and the terms from the critical discourse analysis by Norman Fairclough. The aim is also to explore there different views of knowledge organisation. We review previous research involving epistemology, knowledge organisation and discourse analysis in LIS. These show that there are many different epistemological standpoints and that later research has shown a more critical and sceptical state of knowledge organisation than earlier traditional positivist ideals. Discourse analysis is described as an important theory and method in LIS. Knowledge organisation as a phenomenon is described and specially subject analysis and classification. Furthermore, different viewpoints of knowledge organisation are described in terms of a more intellectual and a more physical viewpoint. Combining the mimesis model from Ricoeur together with the terms, discursive practice, text and social practice from Fairclough we have analysed three texts. We find that all the epistemological discourses want to improve the social practice, but in different ways. They also have a different view on knowledge organisation. We conclude that it is an advantage to divide the epistemological standpoints into three different epistemological discourses, in order to better understand these and how they explicitly and implicitly affect the social practice, LIS.
