Abstract

在《非场所:超现代性导论》中,马克·奥吉写到,全球化的世界产生了意义危机:不是因为太少,而是因为太多。大脑进化到计算远没有那么新奇的程度,其效果是一样的,使我们的时代以噪声而非信号为特征。这种噪声对创意作家和创意写作教师来说都是一个问题,正如萨罗梅·沃格林所说,在噪声中,我们发现了“交流、寻找和实践符号化的欲望,而非语言的意义。那些都是在沉默中练习的”。因此,在我们这个不断符号化的时代,进行“实践意义”的内在心理空间正在丧失。本文认为,除了简单的记录以外,还有一些教学实践可以帮助学习写作的学生恢复心理上的寂静,抵制外来想法,并发展出真实的声音来表达自我以及自我的世界:即对写作主题的现象学思考,尤其是通过艺格敷词的形式。

In Non-places: An Introduction to Supermodernity (2008) Marc Augé writes that the globalised world has produced a crisis of meaning: not that there is too little of it, but rather, too much (Augé 2008, 24). The effect for brains evolved to compute far less novelty is the same, making ours an age characterised by noise rather than signal.
This noise presents a problem for the creative writer and teacher of creative writing alike, for as Salomé Voeglin says, in noise we find “the desire to communicate, to seek and practise signifying, not however [language’s] meanings. Those are practised in silence” (2010, 75). So in our age of incessant signification, the silent mental space in which to ‘practice meaning’ is being lost.
This paper suggests that – in addition to simply logging off – there are pedagogical practices that may help writing students recover mental silence, resist received ideas and develop an authentic voice with which to express themselves and their world: namely, phenomenological meditation on the subjects of writing, especially via a form of ekphrasis.
