Abstract

At what moment do you knock out your pipe on your velskoen? On stories and cultural criticism. This essay proposes a frame of reference in which the culture critical introspection of a community can be understood. A critical exposition of elements of the philosophies of Jeismann, Kuhn, Gadamer and Lyotard is developed with reference to their value for a narratological perspective. The author proposes a narrative understanding of a community and its members, their documents and the relation between community, members and documents. Two elements in relaion to which stories of any community in South Africa could be read - racism and nationalism - are also examined.
