Abstract:It has ordinarily been assumed that the strength of a scientific discipline resides in its purity and integration, in its distinctness. Recently, however, contrasting opinions have emerged: that the strength of a discipline, at least in social sciences, is connected to its richness, plurality and the flexibility of its borders. Clifford Geertz in anthropology, Richard Rorty in philosophy, and Richard Harvey Brown in sociology are among the proponents of such an attitude. This essay takes their work as a point of departure to scrutinize a case of a “creolized” professional career, a hybrid discipline and a kind of writing that could be called “pidgin”
