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”
