Example text

31 Albertine Gaur, Literacy and the Politics of Writing, Bristol, 2000, 171. 28 In the Humanities: Tabooed 29 the application of the term “orality” either to pre-historic (or preEuropean) cultures or to cultures that existed in the awareness of Western societies as distinctively non-European cultures. 32 Like several other twentieth-century scholars, Ong, too, put the alphabet above all other writing systems and argued that it was the invention of the alphabet that facilitated the ascendancy of Greek civilization to analytic thought.

Nonetheless other scholars deserve to be mentioned here as well for supporting the new linguistic trend that generated McLuhan’s history of print culture and Derrida’s theory of the primacy of graphic signs over sounds. , 65-70. , 69-70. Roy Harris, The Origin of Writing, London, 1986, 158. In the Humanities: Tabooed 23 writing, let alone on literacy. Speech still remained central to the work of Milman Parry, Harold Innis, Eric Havelock, Jack Goody, Ian Watt, and Walter Ong, as well as to that of Leroi-Gourhan, Lev Vygotsky, and Aleksandr Lurija – not, however, as a paradigmatic linguistic performance but as one with a semiotic purpose markedly different from that of written texts.

Not only did the new awareness of the semiotic significance of writing fail to prompt studies on illiteracy. Such studies were in fact strategically avoided, as the comments of contemporary scholars on the then popular orality-literacy binary reveal. In these comments, the term “orality” is repeatedly referred to as an ideal solution to the problem of breaking with the overt primitivism of early twentieth-century studies of non-literate cultures. The heavy reliance of these studies on such formulations as “without writing”, “illiterate”, “primitive”, or “savage” was felt to preclude any scientifically objective treatment of cultural otherness and to cause people and peoples without script to be incorrectly represented as inferior, ignorant, and deficient.
