Example text

And finally, considering that all the same thoughts that we have when we are awake can also come to us when we are asleep, without anyone of them being truer than the illusions of my dreams. But immediately afterwards I became aware that, while I decided thus to think that everything was false, it followed necessarily that I who thought thus must be something; and observing that this truth: I think, therefore I am, was so certain and so evident that all the most extravagant suppositions of the sceptics were not capable of shaking it, I judged that I could accept it without scruple as the first principle of the philosophy I was seeking.

Each question provides a different view, a different angle, a different approach to the ‘thing’ in question. How does the other elaborate this ‘thing’ in response to each question – are there differences, are there inconsistencies? The power of language is not that there is a one to one match between a word and a specific object but that a given word refers to the concept of a school and thus can be used to indicate any school real or imaginary. Hence, through the use of language views can be constructed that can then be compared and contrasted – triangulated – with each other.

School, in this sense, is best defined in terms of what it is not. School as a word becomes meaningful to me in a general sense because it does not relate to any given real school. Moreover, the sound I make when speaking the word ‘school’ is arbitrary in the sense that there is no necessary relation between the sound and the concept or thing it designates. In French, the sound is ‘e´cole’. The use of these sounds in these ways is due to historical, social circumstances. Such considerations led Saussure (1966) to propose his view of language as a system of differences that could be analysed according to sounds or marks and the content that those sounds or marks designated.
