Discourse and the Critical Discourse
Volume 4, Issue 1, Pages 435-473
The issue of the discourse looms larger in the contemporary concerns as it ramifies into certain intellectual and textual controversies and grows as cultural enigma, in time we are in rapid transformations due to the knowledge explosion that reshapes many a concept and erects new ones. Thereupon the discourse heaves into horizon to be a salient phenomenon, that it is why we are in the welter of certain tremendous challenges, labyrinth description and multitudinous assertions; religious discourse, political discourse, intellectual discourse, critical discourse, poetic discourse, fictional discourse, media discourse and so forth .However, it is to have other legion concepts in a meant discourse itself; for instance, in the orbit of the critical discourse each literary movement drags such a concept into the interest of certain conceptual systems to erect a concept expressing the meant viewpoint. As a matter of fact, the concept of discourse designates certain conceptual controversies urging us to delimit and adjust it, so for an authenticated research study should depend upon an accurate and established base to employ the discourse as said by Voltaire, in his reputed word: “before starting to talk with me, delimit your discourse“. It is quite convenient to fathom the discourse in the Arab and Western orbits to tackle it in a transparent way in concordance with our studies on the modern or old critical discourse, Arab or nonArab. In the current paper we endeavor to trace the concept of the discourse in line with dictionaries to found a convenient perception and reconnoiter the concept of the discourse either in the Glorious Quran and its Explication or in the dictionaries, Arab dictionaries, the Western Discourse books and the linguistic, critical and philosophical propensities; that is why we do survey all the references to gain accuracy, in particular, those are pertinent to the contemporary critical system, such as the linguistic concept, cultural concept ,philosophical concept and the discourse concept in light of the studies that focus upon the issue of authority and tackle the concept of the discourse in the orbit of both structuralism and pragmatic concepts ,which is to have the Discourse and the Critical Discourse into the limelight.
